Firmin Baes⁣ The young Girl and the Cabbage⁣ 1903⁣ In this piece by Firmin Baes we see a girl holding a cabbage. When this work was made, it was custom in Belgium and the Netherlands to tell children that babies were born out of a cabbage. Does the cabbage symbolize something? Who can tell, but it is beautiful, nonetheless.⁣ “Firmin Baes was a prolific artist who painted, made works in pastel and designed prints and posters. His subject matter ranged from still lifes, genre scenes, portraits, nudes, landscapes and interiors. He became particularly skilled in working in pastel, a medium he used almost exclusively after 1900. An able draftsman, his work is distinguished by its cold realism, the surety of its line and its high level of observation.⁣ From around 1900 he worked almost exclusively in pastel. He achieved a virtuoso technique which is reminiscent of earlier masters in this medium such as Jean-Baptiste Chardin. His pastels were typically applied on canvas, rather than on paper or board. These works are usually executed on a large scale and show a refined technique and luminous colour. His mastery of pastel allowed him to obtain all color ranges.”⁣ (Wikipedia)⁣ #modernart #20thcenturyart #paintings #painting #artlovers #famousartists #famousart #artlegends #masterpieceart #artmasterpieces #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #artlove #firminbaes #baes #girlwithcabbage #girlwithacabbage #pastelpaintings #belgianartist #pastelart
