WILLINK, Albert Carel


WILLINK, Albert Carel
(1900–1983)
   Painter. After aban doning his studies in architecture at the Academy in Delft, Will ink devoted himself to painting. Studying in Berlin, he was influ enced by Cubism, Expressionism, and Constructivism, as can be seen from his illustrations for the periodical he founded with the Belgian Constructivist painter Josef Peeters and Dutch author Charles Edgar du Perron (1899–1940). In the mid-1920s, his paint ing became more realistic. Willink produced several portraits (of his wives, industrialists, men of letters, and others) and became fa mous for his “magical realistic” paintings of houses (most in an Amsterdam setting) and of “Arcadian landscapes,” which resem ble the surrealistic works by Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, and Paul Delvaux.
