Eef van Brakel: Capturing Water and Land in Vivid Expressions of Color

This week, Collectioneurs.nl features Eef van Brakel, an artist whose affinity with nature, and particularly with water, found vibrant expression in his art.

Eef van Brakel, born on the banks of the Rhine, devoted his life to capturing the dynamic interplay of water and landscape in his art. As a self-taught painter, he developed a distinct expressionistic style where the raw interplay of color and shape takes center stage. His career at Rijkswaterstaat reflects his profound connection with waterways, which became a recurring theme in his artworks. Van Brakel's paintings, characterized by bold colors and expansive compositions, present a pure and sometimes nearly abstract interpretation of the Dutch landscape. This week we commemorate Van Brakel's legacy and his passion for painting, which he pursued well into his later years.
