Great Expectations – Edward Antoon Portielje

Edward Portielje (Antwerp, 8 February 1861 – there, 18 December 1949) was a Belgian painter.

For a short time, style and choice of subjects ran parallel to those of his brother Gerard. But Edward Portielje developed his own touch with fine and precise work and use of his own themes. He found his inspiration especially in fisherman’s environments in Zeeland. They are traditional inn scenes or living rooms animated with one, two, four or even more characters. They are often domestic scenes with mothers with children, lace-skaters, women who hold coffee-trays around a table, lovers and the like, all in the local costume at the time. He also painted navies. All in all a rather stereotypical oeuvre.

A tight realistic touch gradually gave way to a looser brush technique and a moderately impressionistic approach. He played with light effects of the daylight that falls through the open or semi-closed windows in the rooms.

Portielje’s images of the domestic woman show a sensitivity toward the female sitter and the encompassing environment. Here, the woman puts down her work to read the letter to her companion and share the good news contained therein.
