Hans Vandekerckhove (Kortrijk, 1957) lives in Ghent. He is a romanticist and individualist who evolved in his work from a neo-expressionist style (early 1980s) to a quasi abstract image inspired by alchemical motifs (1990s) before returning, from 1998, to the figurative and content-related themes of the pictorial relationship between motif and background and man and environment. Vandekerckhove's paintings are contemplative, ascetic works that cause a certain unrest and at the same time are attractive, without falling into the alienation of surrealism. 

In the period 1989-1996, in which he painted this work, he lived in Tuscany and Umbria. The Italian influences are clearly evident in the colour palette.
