by Corné Akkers

Oil on wood panel (71.2 x 90.1 x 0.9 cm)Artist: Corné AkkersA commission for a classic portrait.

1969, born in Nijmegen. My work can be seen in many countries all over the world. Corné employs a variety of styles that all have one thing in common: the ever search for the light on phenomena and all the shadows and light planes they block in. His favorites in doing so are oil paint, dry pastel and graphite pencil.
