Barth (Bartholomeus Constant Lodewijk) Verschaeren was a Belgian artist born in Mechelen in 1888 and died there in 1946. He was a painter, watercolorist, etcher and sculptor. He was the brother of Theodore and Karel Verschaeren. He studied at the Academy in Mechelen under the supervision of W. Rosier. He had a preference for, among other things, landscapes, portraits, figures and rural interiors. He mainly gained his fame by painting the Flemish farmer and the rural life. Between 1910 and 1915 he worked in Amsterdam, Berlin and London for quite some time. After being productive in the US for four years (1920-1924), even sculpting and being succesfull in it, he returned to his hometown. He evolved from impressionism around 1924 to expressionism and from there on developed his own style. His connection with the soil becomes clear when you see his portrayal of rural life, whereby the design sometimes shows some affinity with that of Laermans. Was friends with, among others, Ernest Wijnants, Louis Vercauteren, Albert Van Hoogenbemt. Work among others in the Busleyden Museum in Mechelen. Listed in BAS I. (PIRON)
