|“Les Filles Dans la Forêt" (Girls In Forest) oil on board, signed bas doite Xavier De Cock (1818 - 1896). Dimensions: 25"X 38.5. This is a large iconic example of De Cock's famous intense greens and unique style. De Cock astonished the world with his style of carelessness and neglect of symmetry when depicting the forest. De Cock, a Belgian artist first studied at the Academy in Brussels, then studied in Barbizon, France. He began with the nostalgic, fantasized landscapes of Romanticism but used a more loose touch depicting the so-called underwood. De Cock became famous for his rich gradations of the foliage greens and the play of (filtered) light and shadow in Nature’s woods and forests. In 1862 the Ghent Museum purchased his “De Meersstraat”, thence forward he was famous in his own time for his talents.
