Landscapes of Marc Rieu: Dream and Reality


Landscapes of Marc Rieu: Dream and Reality
February 28, 2012: The in 1978 born in Maastricht Marc Rieu, refers to his painting style as"suggestive illusionism" which means he suggests a reality which he then enchants with the brush. For him, art flows out of a feeling and does not come from his head.

Why does he paint landscapes? Although we view the many disasters which frequently happen anywhere, it still shows how beautiful the world really is. He describes himself as a romantic.

Marc Rieu studied art history in Nijmegen and wrote his thesis on Caspar David Friedrich, a
andscape painter from the 19th Century, who strongly influenced him: dark mysterious landscapes with fog banks and disturbing mountains on the horizon. Other influences in the
arts for him are, Frederic Edwin Church, Albert Bierstadt and René Magritte.

In addition to painting, there is also a second passion for Marc Rieu: classical music and film music. His love for music is no accident: His father is the internationally acclaimed violinist and conductor André Rieu.
This exhibition, "Landscapes by Marc Rieu: Dream and Reality" will be opened this Sunday, March 4, 2012 at 2:30 PM in the BFR radio House in Eupen (Belgium) The organizer is Karl-Heinz Lambertz, Prime Minister of the German-speaking community. A musical accompaniment will be performed by Serge Bosch (tenor) and Fabienne Crutzen (piano).
The exhibition will run until 25 March, Monday to Friday from 9 AM to 6 PM and on Sunday from 11 AM to 6 PM
Thanks for Ineke/Kathi sending this and John Translating it for us.

I think I must be cross eyed, but where is the exhibition being held? I just love Marc's work so much. So expressive, so dreamy and yet so accute, he truly has all the makings of a great artist. Maybe he is the one who will bring Holland back to their artistical peak like they had in the golden century? If anyone could, surely it would be Marc! A great artist in a long line of great, grandiose Dutch artists. Bravo, Marc!

I agree, Marc Rieu is a very talented young artist with a great deal of potential. I also see Turner in some of his colors, and the Dutch landscape masters in some of his skies and clouds. Wishing Marc good luck with his exhibition- Jennifer D.

Marc's paintings appear to follow Mauve, van Ruisdael and Israels somewhat. My Dutch favorites are closer to Rembrant, Cuyp and Maes.
But, American historical artist JLG Ferris created some wonderful art. Guess it's all in the eye of the beholder because I don't care for Van Gogh's style.
