Anneke van Brussel is a Dutch realist painter whose subjects include still life and portraits, sometimes with landscape backgrounds. She was born in Eindhoven, the Netherlands and studied at the Dutch Royal Academy for Art and Design and the Academie voor Schone Kunsten in Antwerp, Belgium. Upon completing her studies in 1971, she began exhibiting her work and while still in her 20s was included in a traveling exhibition of Dutch contemporary realism exhibited in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. In 1978, van Brussel had her first show at Lieve Hermel Gallery in Amsterdam, which as of 2007, still represents her work. In the mid-1980s she began exhibiting in the U.S., including shows at the Alexander Milliken Gallery in New York, and has continued to exhibit internationally on a regular basis.
