Footnotes

  • Saverys was one of the second generation of painters living and working at Laethem-Saint-Martin, located on the River Lys near Ghent. Opposed to Impressionism, the painters at Laethem-Saint-Martin sought to find a more expressive style through which to render their compositions. Like Valerius de Saedeler before him, Saverys found inspiration in the expansive landscape and delicate light of the Lys area. Arguably Saverys' most successful renderings of the atmosphere at Laethem-Saint-Martin occur in his winter scenes, characteristic elements of which include strong silhouettes of windmills against broad skies and partially frozen lakes glistening in the winter sun. In Winter Landscape, Saverys used strong rapidly applied brushstrokes to imbue the composition with an energy, arguably mirroring the force of nature. Yet there is stillness to the composition, evoking a sense of nature frozen but on the brink of awakening. A desire to capture seasonal change connects Saverys' works to the Flemish tradition, most notably Bruegel. However Saverys’ canvases find international appeal.
