Hubert Roestenburg German Expressionist painter

Although almost abstract, this is a landscape painting.  A German expressionist painting. It seems ‘brooding’, ‘dark’, ‘happy’ and ‘light’ all at the same time.  It is also plain to see that the painter Hubert Roestenburg has poured his heart and soul into this work. It stirs up complex emotions in most people who view this painting. Roestenburg’s own emotions were clearly very much engaged while making this piece.

German Expressionism

Hubert Roestenburg was born in The Netherlands, Amsterdam in 1923.  He can be considered an expressionist painter.  Most art critics are more precise and group him with the German Expressionists. They see kinship with Max Beckmann, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, August Macke, Franz Marc, Emil Nolde, and Max Pechstein. Hubert Roestenburg can be seen as one of the last surviving members of the art movement known as German Expressionism. He currently lives in the Eifel mountains in Germany and in spite of his advanced age, (or maybe because of it) he is producing work that can be considered the best work he has ever done.
