APPEL, Karel
1921 Amsterdam – 2006 Zurich. Contemporary Painting
Karel (Christiaan) Appel was a Dutch painter, sculptor, designer, printmaker and writer. He was first encouraged to paint by an uncle, who gave him a set of paints for his 15th birthday, and he also took painting lessons.
He began to paint with a more vigorous palette, with a clear interest in German Expressionism and above all in the work of Van Gogh. There was a turning-point in Appel’s style c. 1945 when he found inspiration in the art of the Ecole de Paris and in particular Matisse and Picasso. This influence remained visible in his work until 1948, for example in a series of plaster sculptures that he made at this time.
He was one of the founders of the CoBrA group, the European group of the late 1940s to early 1950s allied with abstract expressionism. Appel reacted against the austerity of such earlier Dutch abstraction as that of de Stijl.
