Gerard de Wit

1931 - 2010

About the artist

Gerard de Wit was born in 1931. His work can be classified as traditional, yet innovative. Throughout his life, de Wit always stayed true to his own preferences and values in the field of painting, even when the emerging appreciation of abstract art was undeniably present.

Gerard de Wit expressed himself through oil paint, in strong and powerful brushstrokes. To him, painting meant more than just the act of filling a canvas: the observation of reality was of equally great importance. This philosophy resulted in paintings that translated his own sense of atmosphere perfectly. De Wit passed away in 2010.
