Rare and early Bram Bogart gouache, signed at the right bottom. The gouache is in its original framework, measurements are including frame. The work is in good condition as you can see on the pictures. Very hard to find early and important work by Bogart.

The works of Bram Bogart have a monumental character. Partly due to his revolutionary application of materials and innovative technique art historians consider him to be one of the most important representatives of the so-called material art.This Dutchman , a naturalized Belgian sculptor, ceramist, painter and graphic artist was born on 12 July 1921 in Delft and was called Abraham van den Bogaert and studied at the Academy for a while. As a young figurative painter he lived through an expressionist period. He was particularly inspired by Permeke and Van Gogh.

Later on he called himself Bram Bogart and he stayed alternately in the Netherlands, Italy and France. His work became more and more abstract. In the fifties he already belonged to the most progressive artists of the “Informele Groep“. In Paris he lived for some time in the same house than Appel and Corneille, in the Rue Santeuil. But he refused to join CoBrA. This movement was too much attached to coincidence and impulsiveness according to the individual Bogart.

After experimenting with geometrical motifs (circles and crosses) and with Japanese calligraphy, in the sixties – he lived in Brussels at the time – the great turning point followed, when he started using a concrete-like slurry which was made with a.o. linseed oil, stand oil, color pigments and mortar. Bram Bogart started to work in a purely abstract-expressionist way and he acquired prominence all over the world with his canvasses on which he put his paste in thick, rough layers.
