Kees (1877-1968) Van Dongen
Cornelis Theodorus Maria van Dongen (26 January 1877 – 28 May 1968), usually known as Kees van Dongen or just Van Dongen, was a Dutch painter and one of the Fauves. He gained a reputation for his sensuous, at times garish, portraits. Van Dongen began to exhibit in Paris, and participated in the controversial 1905 Salon d'Automne exhibition. Other painters included Henri Matisse. The bright colors of this group of artists led to them being called Fauves ('Wild Beasts'). Van Dongen was also briefly a member of the German Expressionist group Die Brücke. In these years he was part of an avant-garde wave of painters, including Maurice de Vlaminck, Othon Friesz, Henri Rousseau, Robert Delaunay, Albert Marquet, Édouard Vuillard, who aspired to a renewal of painting which they thought was stuck in neo-impressionism. In 1906, Preitinger and van Dongen moved to the Bateau Lavoir at 13 rue Ravignan in Montmartre, where they were friends with the circle surrounding Pablo Picasso and his girlfriend Fernande Olivier. After the First World War, under the influence of his companion, the fashion director Jasmy Jacob, among others, van Dongen developed the lush colours of his Fauvist style. This earned him a solid reputation with the French bourgeoisie and upper class, where he was in demand for his portraits. As a fashionable portraitist, he was commissioned for subjects including Arletty, Louis Barthou, Sacha Guitry, Leopold III of Belgium, Anna de Noailles and Maurice Chevalier. With a playful cynicism he remarked of his popularity as a portraitist with high society women, "The essential thing is to elongate the women and especially to make them slim. After that it just remains to enlarge their jewels. They are ravished. This remark is reminiscent of another of his sayings: "Painting is the most beautiful of lies". In 1926, he was awarded the French Legion of Honour and in 1927 the Order of the Crown of Belgium in recognition of his contributions to art. In 1929, the French government awarded him citizenship. Two of his works were collected that year by the Musée du Luxembourg. The social and commercial appeal of his later work (such as a 1959 portrait of Brigitte Bardot in a little black dress, with her hair tousled) did not match the artistic promise or the bohemian eroticism of his first three decades of work. From 1959, Kees van Dongen lived in Monaco. He died in his home in Monte Carlo in 1968 Kees van Dongen (b. 1877, Delfshaven – d. 1968 Monte Carlo) The Dutch painter, Cornelis Theodores Marie (Kees) van Dongen, was born on January 1, 1877, near Rotterdam in Delfshaven. The Impressionists awoke his interest in art, and his early artistic endevours were influenced by their style. Van Dongen studied at the academy in Rotterdam, though he did not finish his studies there, instead earning his livelihood working for the magazines "Groene" and "Rotterdam Neusblad." Scandal broke out with the publication of his racy drawings of prostitutes and harbor life. In 1897, he went to Paris, where he met Matisse. In Paris, he lived in the studio-house Bateau-Lavoir, in which Pablo Picasso later rented a room. He worked as an illustrator for "Revoue Blanche" and "L'assiette au Beurre." In 1903, van Dongen exhibited his works publicly for the first time and two years later became associated with the group Fauves (wild beasts). Nevertheless, his affinity for the German Expressionists can be recognized in his works. He later exhibited with "Die Brücke" (the Bridge), a group of German Expressionists. His Expressionist portraits were extremely popular throughout continental Europe during the war years. At the end of World War I, van Dongen was discovered by the upper-class, who contracted him for many celebrity portraits, which made him a chronicler of 1920's and 1930's society. He remained an important Parisian painter for many years, appreciated especially for his portraits. He is considered a Fauvist, but his style is still nevertheless closely related to the German Expressionists. He is appreciated for his unique coloring, especially in his portraits but also in his likenesses and landscapes. Kees van Dongen died on May 28, 1968, in Monte Carlo.
