Belgische kunstenaar Albert de Roover

de Roover Albert

Albert De Roover was a Belgian painter born in Boom in 1892 and died in Borgerhout/Antwerp in 1978). He was the brother of Carlo De Roover. He followed his education at the Academy and at the Higher Institute in Antwerp. He was a student of, among others, J. De Vriendt and Is. sum up. In the beginning he made genre scenes, landscapes, portraits, figures and flower arrangements. He evolved from traditional design to abstracted work with references to vegetal structures. During the First World War he lived in the Netherlands and taught drawing in Arnhem. From the press: 'In the abstract compositions of J.D.R. surfaces and color spots are in themselves a plastic reality. As they are attuned to each other, they externalize static spatiality, motor movement and emotional feelings. For him, the shape-modulating imitation of light of the Impressionists, which initially fascinated him, has been lost for good. His areas of color have either a luminous or a light-shielding function and immediately form the components of the compositional whole, which is, as it were, geometrically determined by the constructive line and the functional pictorial dynamics.' (1975) Albert De Roover was a teacher at the Academy in Antwerp (1925-1957) and director at the Academy in Temse (1920-1950). In 1980 the Academy of Antwerp organized a retrospective of his Oeuvre. We can find his work in the Museum in Antwerp, among other places. He is mentioned in CRICK, BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (Piron)
