Willem Reinders (1881-1960) born in the city of Haren in the Netherlands, was educated with the Minerva Academy of Art and Design, when he moved to Groningen.
There is an artist collective in Groningen that was established in 1918 by a group of young artists, who named themselves "De Ploeg"...:'The Plough', to create new opportunities for exhibitions and to educate the general public about developments in the arts, architecture and literature.
The name was suggested because they felt like a lot of ground still had to be broken for modern art in Groningen. Several art styles were prominent within "De Ploeg", including expressionism , constructivism and impressionism . This artist collective still exists, but its most important time lay in the 1920s.
This painting from 1951 is an example of their Abstract Expressionist Oil Painting style embodied by Willem Reinders, a mid century listed Dutch artist, whose works have reached North American markets.
Rich, extremely thick dabs of impasto in both canvases are applied in a highly expressionistic manner in this still life color abstraction.
He paints wilder rural scenes of crashing waves by the shore, ducks in flight in the backwoods lowlands, still lifes of summer blooms, and all with this enormous vitality bursting out of the canvas.
Frames and oils are in good condition, ready to hang.
