Lithograph by Karel Appel from 2000, The Dutch painter, sculptor and poet Karel Appel was born on April 25, 1921 in Amsterdam. He was the son of a hairdresser and after an argument with his father, he enrolled at the State Academy of Art. During the Second World War, Appel met Corneille during his education. Paris After the war Karel Appel traveled with Corneille to Liège and later to Paris. In 1947 Appel also got to know Constant. Appel, Corneille and Constant exhibited at art dealership Santee Landweer in Amsterdam in 1948. In July 1948 Karel Appel was one of the founders of the Dutch Experimental Group and in November 1948 he was involved in the founding of Cobra. Cobra Karel Appel initially became the figurehead of the Cobra movement in the Netherlands and later also in the rest of the world. The term "I just mess around" was used in a negative sense by opponents of Appel's expressive style, but it does indicate well how Karel Appel proceeded: he picked up a subject and arrived at a result while working. In the 1940s and 1950s Karel Appel's work caused heated discussions. His mural 'Questioning children', painted in 1949 in the canteen of Amsterdam's city hall, soon disappeared behind wallpaper, because indignant officials were interrupted during lunch.
