Artist Biography:
Modest Huys was a Belgian painter of landscapes and portraits. He received advice from Emile Claus and was later a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Modeste Huys was an enthusiast of anything concerning light and colours and the poet of joyous and happy country life. His works are full of optimistic luminism, translating with delight the most beautiful aspects of an ever-admirable nature. His art glorifies the fertile and plentiful Flanders where the silvery and slithering ribbon of the river Lys flows. Modeste Huys is more particularly the painter of the River Lys and of flax. His works are an hymn for his native country.
