Oil on canvas, signed lower right, in original decorative gilt frame.
Eugene Dekkert was a German born landscape and marine painter. He studied at the Academy in Munich as a student of Theodor Hummel. He lived and worked in Glasgow from 1899 - 1903 before moving to St. Monance, on the Fife coast, where he created many of his landscape paintings. He has also repeatedly captured the English coast line in his evocative paintings.
In his watercolours, he employed thin, often dull-coloured washes in a somewhat coarse manner. His oils were more successful and were also clearly influenced by the Hague School.
Dekkert exhibited in Scotland, from 1899 until 1940, at The Royal Scottish Academy, The Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours, The Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts and the Aberdeen Art Society. He also participated in the great German art exhibitions in Berlin, Dresden and Munich. Dekkert was a member of the Munich Secession. Many of his works are in international as well as German museums, such as the Neue Pinakothek in Munich.
