Lodewijk Schelfhout (1881-1943) is one of the first Dutch painters to be influenced by Cubism, especially under the influence of Henri Le Fauconnier.
Schelfhout was the founder of the Moderne Kunstkring (Amsterdam) in 1910. During the first exhibition of this circle in 1911, Schelfhout's work hung on ultra-modern 'French' Cubism and other newest Dutch art. Schelfhout encouraged Piet Mondrian to come to Paris to follow the latest artistic developments there. Mondrian moved in with Schelfhout for some time, living in a studio house owned by Conrad Kickert. In 1912, both moved to another studio complex of Kickert: Rue du Départ 26, Montparnasse. The Moderne Kunstkring lasted only a few years. Schelfhout, Gestel, Sluijters and Mondriaan eventually got rid of it and each went his own way. Schelfhout taught painting lessons and radio lectures on art history and owned his own art room in Amsterdam for several years. After 1913, Schelfhout changed his theme and method drastically. He left Cubism behind for more symbolist/religious work. The dry needle replaced his brush and eventually Schelfhout became a valued graphic artist.
Work on display at Museum Kröller-Müller in Otterlo, Museum Catharijneconvent in Utrecht, Gemeentemuseum The Hague and Singer Museum in Laren.
