Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Charles Kvapil was born in 1884 in Anvers, Belgium. He exhibited his first work in Anvers in 1908 at the Salon d'Anvers. In 1911 he exhibited in Munich, where his works showed an influence of Cubism, and that same year he exhibited at the Triennale de Bruxelles.

He was mobilized into the army in World War One. After the war he attended l'Académie des Beaux-Arts in Anvers. He began to exhibit in Paris in 1920 at the Salon des Indépendants.

He moved into a studio in Montmartre where he lived for many years. He painted his models in the studio, occasionally in front of his window with the hills of Montmartre in the background. He also painted in the countryside like the Impressionists, often working with groups of nudes. He had many exhibitions throughout the 1920's and 1930's in Paris.

Kvapil's paintings are bold and modern, his nudes and his flowers are strong and powerful. His palette is often rich in cobalt blues and other fauvist colors; his brush technique is deliberate, and powerful. Some influence of Courbet and Manet can been seen in the posing and composition of his images.

He exhibited in his lifetime in Paris, Munich, Brussels, Geneva, Italy, Stockholm, London and New York.

He died in Paris in 1957.

His works are held in the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, and the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Amsterdam, and museums in Le Havre, Rouen, Luxembourg, Saint-Etienne and Tunisia.
