Oil on canvas
Signed lower right.

Provenance: Willy de Jonghe.

Modest Huys was a Flemish impressionist and luminist painter, who is regarded as one of the greatest Belgian painters of the 20th century.

In 1891 or 1892, he came into contact with Emile Claus, who encouraged his artistic inclinations.

He was an impressionist-luminist painter of figures, portraits, landscapes, rural life and popular scenes in the Lys region, especially the region of Olsene and Gottem: harvest scenes, flax cultivation, the fair, processions and pilgrimages... His portraits of Stijn Streuvels, Hugo Verriest and René de Clercq. are also well known.

In his early years he was strongly influenced by Emile Claus but never lapsed into epigonism. In the pre-war years he thus presents himself as a leading representative of Luminism.
