Modest Huys (1874 - 1932) - Cows along the river Mandel

Modest Huys (Olsene 1874 - 1932 Zulte) was an Impressionist-Luminist painter of figures, portraits, landscapes, rural life and folk scenes in the Leie region, especially the region of Olsene and Gottem. Harvest scenes, flax cultivation, fairs, processions and pilgrimages were his trademark. In his early years he was strongly influenced by Emile Claus. In the prewar years he profiled himself a leading representative of Luminism. His style kept evolving but remained far away from expressionism which made its entrance at that time.
