Swyncop (1960). Realized portraits, often depicted against a background of vegetation and branches, and poetic scenes from everyday life. Specialized mainly in children's portraits. She had a gel, lively and warm color palette, but stark contrasts or loud hues were alien to her. From the press: 'For E.F. making money through her art was the last thing on her mind. Fame also left her cold, although she did not remain insensitive to the opinion of art critics after her exhibitions. The only thing that really mattered to her was experiencing her painting. And she was completely absorbed in this experience. In her sketchbook, which was always within reach, she recorded the subjects that touched her, which could be the old people in the Marolles or on the Brussels squares, the children who played in the street in her neighborhood or whom they met during her travels. ran into.” Was a member of the Circle L'Ebauche in Brussels.
