Karel APPEL (Amsterdam 1921 - Zurich 2006)

Education

Karel Appel started his career as an artist, as the son of a hairdresser, in Amsterdam, where he studied at the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam during the war years, much to the dismay of his father.

During his years at the academy Karel Appel became friends with Corneille and Constant. A friendship that would last a very long time and was decisive for his further development. In the beginning Appel worked expressionistically and was strongly influenced by people like Picasso and Matisse, a few years after the war he founded the experimental group together with Corneille, Wolvecamp and Constant, among others, and his work is increasingly autonomous.

In 1948 the members of the experimental group joined forces with artists from Denmark and Belgium and founded the – now very well-known – CoBrA group. CoBrA stands for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. The CoBrA group has been very influential in Dutch post-war art and enjoys great international fame.

The real international breakthrough for Karel Appel comes when he starts working across the border himself, in New York and later in France. He gets his first Solo exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 1968 and many exhibitions abroad follow.

Karel Appel can be counted as one of the most important artists of the Netherlands in modern art history.
