Karel Appel

Ámsterdam 1921

Karel Appel is a founding member of the CoBra group. He studied at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (Academy of Fine Arts) in Amsterdam. Classified as an expressionist painter of the second half of the 20th century, his work, while approaching abstraction, always contains recognisable themes, such as people, animals, landscapes, among others. During his time in CoBrA, he painted brightly coloured simple figures with strong outlines. Nowadays, his works are distributed in different museums, galleries and art collections from all over the world.
