Belgian painter born in Germany (Gladberg) in 1926, trained at the Academy of Dusseldorf, he settled in Belgium in La Louvière in 1948. He began his career with Surrealism and then Lyrical Abstraction when he arrived in Belgium, before moving on to Hyperrealism (Figurative). Later, influenced by Pop Art and photography, he painted the naked bodies of blurred women, as if a camera had shaken during the shot. The theme of women is almost omnipresent in his provocative and sensual work, magnified by delicate chiaroscuro effects. In La Presse: "Her works, with their dreamlike realism, are architecturally constructed. Her compositions are underpinned by curves that celebrate feminine grace in a sumptuous setting. Her colours create astonishing contrasts with the pearly, bronzed, lascivious flesh of her models"... JPB Prize, Prix H. Jacquet, Prix Europe de Peinture à Ostende, Co-founder of Groupe G.3. Works acquired by the State and the Province of Hainaut and in the Museums of Charleroi, Verviers, Frankfurt, Gladbeck. Mentioned in BAS II and in "Deux Siècles de Signatures d'Artistes de Belgique". Numerous exhibitions including Brachot in Brussels in 1972.
