Jacques Van Coppenolle

French Painter

Jacques Van Coppenolle continued in the tradition of his father, Edmond, a Belgian who came to France to decorate porcelain in the Schopin works in Montigny, where Jacques was born. In their paintings, we often find themes that the father and son originally developed as ceramic decorations, including chickens and roosters.

The son’s taste for detail also expressed itself in still lifes, particularly bouquets of flowers. He painted landscapes in highly contrasted colors with thick, generous oils. Impressionist sensitivity shows in his treatment of light in the depths of his forests and on the banks of the Loing River.

In 1904 Coppenolle showed in the Salon des Artistes Indépendants. Soon after exhibiting work in the Salon d’Automne in 1914—of which he had become the Secretary—he was killed in action during the First World War.

Several museums possess works of Jacques Van Coppenolle, including Chateau-Thierry, Gray and Nemours.
