Albert De Roover, or in full Jan-Albert De Roover is a Belgian artist born in 1892 and died in 1978. He was a painter of genre scenes, flowers, landscapes and portraits. He studied at the Antwerp Academy and the NHISKA. He makes his debut with strong expressionist images of brickyards and workers. Until 1945 he painted portraits and landscapes of the Rupel region and still lifes during WWII. After WWII he evolves, through a gradual abstracting and an anti-realistic use of color, to abstract painting (Arto).
