Woman on A Sofa - Kees van Dongen 1930
About this painting
Kees van Dongen was a Dutch French painter who was one of the leading Fauves.
The paintings he made in the period of 1905-1910 are considered by some to be his most important works. The themes of his work from that period are predominantly centered around the nightlife; he paints dancers, singers, masquerades and theatre. Van Dongen gained a reputation for his sensuous - at times garish - portraits of especially women.
“Painting is the most beautiful of lies.” ~ Kees van Dongen
