The Dutch painter Abraham Gerardus Van Velde, who shortened his first name Abraham to Bram, became known for his intensively coloured style, which is regarded as corresponding to expressionism as well as Surrealism. He spent two years in the colony of artists Worpswede near Bremen, where German expressionists came together as a life and work partnership. In Paris he turned towards abstract painting. He is mostly known due to his friendship with the Irish author Samuel Beckett, who supported his art. Van Velde took part in the documenta III in 1984 in Kassel.
