A charming depiction of flowers gathered in the garden, an image that is poignant in its simplicity and innocence. It is a work by Belgian woman artist Marie Howet (1897-1984), dating from 1940.
Marie Françoise Céline Howet was born in Libramont, daughter of Constant Howet, a doctor, and Pauline Thiry. She received a musical education and learned drawing, attending school in Arlon. Originally she planned to study music but instead chose art and enrolled at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. Here she studied under Constant Montald. In her first year she received several prizes, but the outbreak of the First World War led to her family's exile in France. In 1915 she enrolled in the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
After the war she returned to Belgium and set up a studio at Rochehaut, near Bouillon, later moving to Saint Gilles. In 1922, aged 25, she won the Belgian Prix de Rome.
Her works received critical acclaim and several prizes for her work. She travelled and exhibited frequently abroad, illustrating collections of poetry on Greece, Turkey, Ireland, and Italy. She died on her 87th birthday at Libramont.
Our floral still life watercolour by Marie Howet is signed at the lower right and measures 46 x 29.5 cm at sight.
The painting is presented is what is really just a placeholder frame in fair condition. However, it is useful if you wish to present the painting on a narrow wall. The overall framed size is 48.5 x 32 cm.
