de Roover is a Belgian artist who moves in his works between realism and abstraction. At one time one encounters a nice nude painting and a few months later  one finds from almost the same year, an abstract painting. For me personally i think his abstract paintings are far more convincing than his realistic ones. It does not mean that his realistic paintings are not good, but i find them  to be “13 in a dozen” and not that attractive. However his abtract art is different and some of his paintings are nice enough to collect.

Carlo de Roover is hardly known outside Belgium , so if yiou are interested in this artit it is best to focus on Belgina collections and auctions. One exception…. has the 1979 ICC catalogue now available.
