Karel Appel (1921-2006) was an important abstract painter and one of the founders of the COBRA movement.

In the late 1940's and 50's his work, along with his colleagues, was strongly rejected in Holland forcing him to relocate to Denmark where he was embraced with much enthusiasm, eventually settling in Paris.

Gradually he would achieve international recognition for his expressive and naive figuration and boldly colored abstraction.

This work, with its bold primary colors and naif figuration is a paradigm of Appel's charm. Throughout Appel's career he explores the essential characteristics of animals including owls, horses, cats. To our knowledge this is one of his only depictions of a dog.
