Buisseret Louis

Louis Buisseret was a Belgian painter, draftsman and graphic artist. He was born in Binche in 1888 and died in Brussels in 1956. He received his drawing training at the Academy in Mons under the supervision of L. Greuze, his painting training under the guidance of E. Motte, then he went to the Academy in Brussels, where he studied painting under H. Richir and drawing under J. Delville. In Brussels he became permeated by the symbolist atmosphere. He was awarded the Prix de Rome for engraving in 1911. He realized, among other things, classical portraits and figures that appear static and show influences from David and Ingres and the Italian synthesis, but also painted nudes, landscapes, still lifes and compositions. His works breathe serenity and purity. He used a muted color palette. His work is very diverse: sometimes allegorical compositions, intimate works, compositions that radiate an impression of strength, sometimes soft still lifes in pure lines and portraits. He is described as 'the most Latin of the Walloon painters'. Together with Anto Carte he founded the Walloon Group Nervia in 1928. From 1918 he became a teacher and from 1929 to 1949 he was director at the Academy in Mons. His work can be found in the Museums in Brussels, Antwerp, Liège, Mons, Binche and La Louvière. He is mentioned in BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (piron)
