Three ladies and a girl

Oil on canvas  125.2 x 100 cm

Signed lower right


In this work, three ladies and a young girl can be seen against a background of a city. The painting was probably made after 1950, in view of the colours and form used. The bodies of the figures are mainly built up from triangular components. Kimpe did a bit more elaborate work on the faces and, with their large eyes and the pronounced lines in the distance, they are reminiscent of the figures by Picasso. With regard to colour, their black, lemon and bright blue bodies form a beautiful contrast with the white and red of the buildings in the background.

Despite the severe body shapes and strong colour contrasts, the ladies have a friendly appearance. This is precisely the harmony that Kimpe aimed for. He added elegant, feminine details to the harsh lines and colours, such as thin belts, long gloves, jewellery and attractive high heels. The young girl with the striking turquoise face holds hands and walks confidently with the two ladies. She provides an extra overtone because she is looking directly at the observer.
