Painting of women's portraits, oil on panel, circa 1980. Very qualitative and original work painted by Jean-Claude Dresse, Belgian painter.
The portrait of an Asian woman with a kimono visible on the left refers to the Japanese prints of the great Ukiyo-e masters in the 18th century (Sharaku Toshusai, Hokusai, Hiroshige, Utamaro...). The portrait of the right face shows the peaceful influence of the Belgian symbolist painter Fernand Knopff... Geometrical composition presented in the manner of comics, probably influenced by his teacher Marcel Gibon, a comic strip artist.
