Creten George

George Creten (called CRETEN-GEORGE) was a Belgian artist, born in Sint-Gillis/Brussels in 1887 and died in Uccle in 1966. He was a painter and draftsman. His father was a decorative painter. He received some lessons in sculpture under the guidance of G. and J. Dillens and some painting lessons under the guidance of J. Delville at the Academy in Brussels (1904-1906). But he was largely self-taught. He was in Paris when Fauvism was emerging. From 1910 he turned out to be an avid colorist in Belgium and worked in a broad brushstroke and a clear color palette. In the 1920s he followed the expressionist trend and his style became stronger and more stylized. He worked in permanent connection with the Galleries Sélection and Le Centaure. He found his inspiration mainly in women, often enigmatic and naked, but also painted landscapes, still lifes and portraits. Towards the end of his life he returned to a more naturalistic design. George Creten is mentioned in BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (Piron)
