Inspired by such French masters of landscape painting as Corot, Monet, and Cézanne, Louis Dewis (1872-1946) painted scenes of cities, villages, and the countryside throughout Belgium and France. Working primarily from 1916 until his death in 1946, Dewis was regarded by critics of his time as one of his country’s most distinguished landscape painters, contributing to a revival of traditional landscape painting in France and Belgium during the years between the world wars. Louis Dewis: A Belgian Post-Impressionist places Dewis’s work in historical context and seeks to reestablish his role in the story of 20th-century French and Belgian art. Organized by the Orlando Museum of Art and presenting more than 100 works from throughout his career, this is Dewis’s first important museum exhibition in the United States. The Orlando Museum of Art is grateful to Mr. Brad Face for lending to this exhibition works from his extensive Louis Dewis collection. READ MORE »
