Victor Simonin, Les Casserolles

Victor Simonin, Les Casserolles

A beautiful impressionistic still life by Belgian painter, Victor Simonin (1877-1946). This is a piece full of expression, vibrancy and spirit.

With a broad brush, the artist has skilfully daubed in the various elements and you can see how much he enjoyed painting them. He had an ability for capturing complex arrangements with a loose touch and minimal brushwork.

Simonin studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels and is known for his expressive landscapes and still lifes. He was also a keen violinist until an accident resulted in an injury to his left hand.

The painting is signed in the upper left and bears an exhibition label on the reverse. It’s housed within a good moulded frame.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
