Impressionistic oilpainting by Alfred Calcoen, 

Impressionistic painting by Alfred Calkoen, Australian landscape

This is a very nice oil painting by the Dutch-Australian painter Alfred C. Calkoen. Calkoen painted this Australian landscape in lovely natural colors. More works of Alfred Calkoen are known in the same impressionistic style. It was painted around 1950, and is a standing rectangle. Later in his career Calkoen emigrated to Australia with his wife Joke Hovius, who also was a professional artist. During his Australian career, his style began to change and evolved into the now called Melbourne Bayside School. His paintings became characterized by a more abstract, graphical style. Calkoen finished his study in the Netherlands in the Nieuwe Kunstschool (Amsterdam) During his career he also was an art teacher for many years.

The painting is signed in red paint in the left lower corner ‘Alfred Calkoen’.
The painting is in good condition, with a bit of paint loss on the left side that isn’t to obvious because of the style used. There is minor crackle. The painting is framed in its original 50’s frame. Calkoen’s paintings have been sold by Sotheby’s Australia as well as other auction houses around the world.

The price of this painting is 349,95 Euro plus a 50 euro shipping fee (world-wide).
