Van Hove



28’’ x 36’’


Born in Paris in 1942, Francine Van Hove completed her studies in 1963 at the Lycée Claude Bernard (Paris). Her meticulously painted oils have always been well received since her first solo exhibition in 1971 and can be found in collections in Europe, America and Japan. Known and appreciated for the refined details of her subjects, Francine Van Hove is particularly noted for the transparent skin tones of her nudes, which she always paints from life. The expression of beauty, sensuality, meditation and freedom is the philosophy behind this artist’s work.
