Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.

Stefaan Eyckmans

Posted by Charley Parker at 11:56 am

Stefaan Eyckmans
The elegantly refined still life paintings of Belgian painter Stefaan Eyckmans resonate with the traditions of the 17th century “Golden age” Dutch and Flemish still life masters, as well as evoking the sense of stillness and the transformation of the ordinary into the extraordinary exemplified by Chardin.

Taught primarily by his father, painter and commercial artist Louis Eyckmans, Stefaan Eyckmans took inspiration from his norther European predecessors as well as more contemporary artists.

Primarily, however, he takes his inspiration from life, and the clarity of presentation that comes from keenly focused observation.

His website contains three galleries of his work, and you can see more on the websites of galleries in which he is represented (linked below).
