Andrée Schwabe - Rochu

"Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter."

Oscar Wilde
The Picture of Dorian Grey

In my portraits, I aim to attain calm and tranquillity by painting streets, still life or characters from the past expressing an air of melancholy.

… Portraits mainly of women … paintings of tranquillity, silence and chiaroscuro …

The colours are set on a structured background achieved by a specific technique. I work slowly, layer after layer, day after day, initially with my structures and with glaze and then with paint.

I have been selected:

  In 2005: to represent Luxembourg at the International Art Festival in Monastir, Tunisia,

  In 2007: at the Plastic Arts Festival in San Joao da Madeira, Portugal,

  In 2009: at the 5th Biennial Arts Festival in Strassen, Luxembourg,

  In 2014: to represent Luxembourg at the Fashion Art Institute in Luxembourg.

Every year I participate (with other artists at the Grand Duchy) at the Ateliers "Open Doors".

Please feel free to contact me if you wish to receive more information on the "open doors", on paintings shown on this website or if you just wish to view them in my studio.
