Bart Peizel (1887-1974)

Bart Peizel is from 1939 to 1969 member of the artists association St. Lucas in Amsterdam, 27 years as chairman of the board. Just imagine: Peizel sees in those years a whole generation of artists passing by, follows the growing interest among young artists in new art movements such as Cobra and. . . opposes it violently. In his key position he must make difficult decisions during the Second World War, for instance with regard to the membership of the 'Chamber of Culture'. In short, he must have been a special person.

The in Veendam born Bartele ('Bart') Peizel is mentioned in the monograph from 2007 'Squire between Damsels'. Namely, he marries Thérèse Ansingh (generally known as Sorella), descendant of the famous artists family Schwartze and sister of Lizzy Ansingh, one of the eight Amsterdam Damsels. Partly thanks to this marriage Peizel managed to obtain an important position in the Amsterdam art world. 'Surrounded by affluent Damsels and other paintresses Peizel grows into a very popular artist (...).'

As a northerner Peizel has studied at the Minerva Academy in Groningen and continues his education at the Amsterdam National Drawing School. He is a member of Arti and exhibits in dozens of art galleries, including Pulchri in The Hague. Many prominents are portrayed by him, but he also likes painting town and river scenes, landscapes and still lifes. Study trips he makes inter alia to Paris, Marseille and Algiers.

His work is included in the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the Singer Museum in Laren (NH), the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Veenkoloniaal Museum in Veendam, the Royal Collection and the Drents Museum in Assen.

With his cabincruiser that he moors in the canal before his Amsterdam house, he makes month-long trips through the Netherlands. The wetlands of Dordrecht and Gorinchem have his special interest. This watercolour is undoubtedly made here somewhere. Unfortunately, there are no places to read on the ANWB signpost. . .
