Louis Meys 1902 - 1995

Louis Meys was born in Scheveningen on 31 March 1902, as the eldest of eight children. At a young age, he proved to have a sharp eye for details and drew and painted all that he saw around him. His parents encouraged him in his efforts and provided him with the right materials. He made his first painting at the age of 8. However, when Meys grew older and wanted to turn his hobby into a profession, his parents were less enthusiastic. According to them, the artistic trade offered too small of a future prospect, so he studied general mechanical engineering at the MTS.
He subsequently attended the Academy of Fine Arts in the Hague.


Meys began his career as a technical draughtsman, but after nine years, he had had enough. He became a member of the Hague art circle and chose a life as an artist. And not without merit: in 1934 found his first solo exhibition. Meys was a versatile painter of landscapes, still lifes, portraits, townscapes and seascapes and he always made many sketches and drawings, which were used in his studio as preliminary studies for his oil paintings.


Meys loved his own country and always worked with great pleasure in his quiet studio in the Hague, but he also travelled a lot during his life. For example, he visited Africa, Italy, Germany, Greece, America, Portugal and Israel. The arrival of the Nazis in 1939 made him flee to France, where he would stay for several years. There, he continued his painting and took part in various exhibitions, where his work sold well. Furthermore, his friend and colleague Frits Klein (1898-1990) introduced him to the widow and family of Pierre-Auguste Renoir, with whom he became good friends.


Louis Meys was a founding member of the Free Academy in the Hague and he worked here as a teacher for many years.
Many art critics compare Louis Meys’ work with that of the late French Impressionists, but Meys himself never wanted to be categorised into a certain group or movement. He was, however, inspired by the work of Edouard Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard.
Louis Meys is mentioned in the Jacobs and Scheen lexicons. He was a member of the Haagse Kunstkring. His work is featured in Museum Boymans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, and the municipal museum of the Hague.
