Frans Van Leemputten or Frans van Leemputten (Werchter, 29 December 1850 – Antwerp, 16 November 1914) was a Belgian Realist painter who specialized in landscape paintings of the Campine and Brabantine regions in Belgium as well as scenes with villagers and animals. Frans Van Leemputten painted realist landscapes with figures, village scenes and animal scenes. He initially employed a dull palette but gradually started using brighter tones. Van Leemputten worked in oils as well as in watercolors.[2] His work was influenced by the realism of Jean-François Millet. Van Leemputten was part of a group of Belgian painters who took refuge from the complexity of urban life to look for simplicity, purity and naturalness in the pre-industrial countryside. They saw the countryside as a serene world, which stood in sharp contrast to their familiar urban environment. In the countryside they searched for quiet and contemplation and identified themselves with the simple villagers. They had a particular fondness for the Campine region, which was relatively isolated and had been untouched by industrialization. Some of these artists, such as Theodoor Verstraete and Van Leemputten who both worked in the Campine, depicted the rural reality from their own urban background and viewpoint. Theodoor Verstraete was driven by his social consciousness and compassion with the villagers. Van Leemputten, on the other hand, concentrated on sharp observations of the daily life of the peasants, their customs and key life events. In his works he emphasized the dignity of the poor farmers, their mutual connectedness and profound devoutness. REFERENCE: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frans_Van_Leemputten
