Note:
Filarski regularly painted still lifes in the 1920s. Renée Smithuis, specialist in the Bergen School and Dutch Expressionism, writes the following about the artist in her monograph D.H.W. Filarski (2005): “Many of his still lifes show that Filarski usually worked expeditiously. That does not have to be negative, after all; one of Filarski’s great examples, Vincent van Gogh, had preceded him. Filarski was a passionate and charged gentleman and apparently had to express the tension that was accompanied by the swift build-up of a work – this was not at the expense of quality.”
