Village Street

VLAMINCK, Maurice de (1876 - 1958)

[image: Village Street]

Date: c. 1911-12

Media: oil on canvas

Size: 57.8 x 73.2 cm

Acquired: 1952; Bequest; Gwendoline Davies

Accession Number: NMW A 2402

Vlaminck had been a leading Fauve, together with Matisse, Derain, Friesz and Marquet, but he soon abandoned the brightly coloured Fauvist palette. Sharp recession and large blocks of paint imbue this street scene of 1911-12 with a dynamism reminiscent of Cubist compositions. This and another Vlaminck were purchased by Gwendoline Davies on the recommendation of Hugh Blaker in 1919.

I have an oil that is possibly by Vlaminck. It is a street scene with stick figures and the name on the back of the frame is "Winter Lands". I am unable to find out anything about this painting. It is definitely in oil but most likely is a copy. The frame is covering any signature and I have not tried to remove it from the frame. I have not had it appraised due to the appraisal cost. It is hanging on my wall above my television.

Our city was fortunate enough to be on the tour of this wonderful exhibition. We loved all the works,but I especially felt drawn to the two Vlamincks. Thank you so much for sharing.
