De Saedeleer wrote to a friend in 1919 ,,De streek is hier prachtig, de menschen goed en de Welschen boer herinnert mij dien van Vlaanderen (It is a lovely area here, the people are kind and the Welsh peasant puts me in mind of those in Flanders’).
Maybe for your Welsh paintings gallery:
A winterlandscape in Wales
The valley of the Ystwyth in Wales
View of a valley in Wales
Thanks a lot for the paintings in Wales- it’s strange that i don’t remember him being mentioned in books of Wales and art.
The Ystwyth Valley is the area close by where the film Sleep Furiously is set- and coincidentally it is against a wonderful Belgian film in our world cup. De Saedeleer is a great discovery. I wonder why he is not more famous, many of his wintry landscapes are remarkable

Also, Black Irish, I adore each of the above pics you posted. I do love exaggerated vertices…

Hey, I want to see if anyone is willing to help a brother out here -
Scouring the internet for a painting I saw either here or on Senses of Cinema (perhaps in relation to Ruiz though I can’t fully remember). If my memory serves me correctly in any way (which of course it doesn’t), the painting depicted a painting on a drawing room wall of an ocean port, dissolving/opening the entire wall into this setting.
I hoped it would be somewhere in this topic as it was quite neat, but I do not have the patience to look through 38 pages.
All help/advice/words of ill-portent are greatly appreciated.
i really love this one:
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, In Bed, 1893
In slight honor of aggressive red things, Lady Butler’s ‘Scotland Forever’ (1881)

Sylvia Sleigh: Felicity Rainnie Reclining
In my research for the Welsh gallery, i’ve just come across Sylvia Sleigh (1916-2010) who was born in Wales and moved to the USA. I’m not particularly impressed with her technique, but she’s interesting for being at ease with male nudes (including in groups) as well as female .
