Luxembourgian painter, considered to be one of nation’s best Colourists, whose very varied artistic production includes still life, flowers, Congo and Luxembourg landscapes, figures, nudes and abstract work.
Kesseler, who twice received the Prix Grand-Duc Adolphe (1946 and 1950), turned in 1951 to abstract painting. His Africa inspired gouaches are characterised, as are his other paintings, by expanses of solid colours, pure, vigorous, intense and luminous with strong bold contrasts in which yellow, blue, red and above all contrasting greens dominate. Dynamic geometrical, curving and undulating shapes harmoniously intersect or are superimposed, giving familiar figurative glimpses of tropical vegetation.
He died in Luxembourg on 21 September 1983, aged 84.
