De Roover Prosper
Prosper De Roover was a Belgian painter, born in Temse in 1899 and died in Temse in 1974. He was educated at the Academy in Temse under the supervision of Pieter Dierckx, and at Sint-Lucas in Ghent. He was able to perfect himself by working in the company of painters such as A. De Bats, Cam. Wauters and T. Van Os, all representatives of the Dendermondse School. He mainly found his inspiration in the Waasland, the Scheldt landscape and its changing seasons, but he also painted colorful still lifes and floral compositions and seascapes. He used an Impressionist touch. His first exhibition was in 1924 in the Hall of the Belgian Lion in Temse. He was a teacher of ornamental drawing at the Academy in Temse (1922-1927). Professionally, he worked at the municipal administrative services in Temse. Prosper De Roover is mentioned in BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (Piron).
