Kees van Dongen (Dutch, 1877–1968)


Happy birthday to Kees van Dongen, born on this day in 1877. This portrait entitled “Maria,” presumably after the model who sat for the picture, captures the direct gaze of the sitter. The painting was quickly rendered with a large brush and intense, unblended color. Painted with a certain stylization, Van Dongen’s female sitters often resemble one another with their large, blackened eyes and pale white flesh tones.
