A 1959 signed oil on canvas painting of a ballerina by Dutch artist Antonius Raemaekers (1903-1997). Signed to the lower right, this Cubist painting features a poised ballerina depicted in red and yellow. While her toe shoes appear stationary, there is movement through her voluminous dress. Abstract Cubist forms populate the ground of the painting. Displayed in a black wooden frame, the painting is signed "Raemaekers MAART 1959" to the lower right corner. The painting is titled Ballerina to the verso.

Born in the Netherlands, Raemaekers is known for landscape, genre, and still life paintings. Raemaekers studied at Académie Roy-ale Des Beaux Arts, Liege, Belgium where he received his diploma. After WWII, he moved his family to Martinsville, Indiana where he had a studio and provided art lessons. One of his most successful students was Jenness Cortez.
