Emile Thysebaert, een Belgisch figuratief kunstschilder
Emile Thysebaert was a Belgian figurative painter born in 1873 and died in 1963. He came into contact with the world of the workers at a young age, a theme that is regularly repeated in his works. He followed his education at the Ghent Academy. During his exhibition at Brussels University in 1901, the sad subjects prevailed; penitents, alcoholics, folk people, workmen, market squares, horse markets, balls, processions, draft horses, fishermen. He found many of his subjects in the popular life of the Marolles. Thysebaert was a post-impressionist painter and etcher whose theme was very diverse: marginals, alcoholics, folk people, workmen, market squares, horse markets, balls, processions, draft horses, fishermen. He found many of his subjects in the Marolles. In the later years he also painted images of Mechelen, the dunes in Oostduinkerke and Koksijde, the height of the Dudenpark, Neerpede, etc. He used powerful brush strokes and striking colors. If his colorite was rather gloomy in the beginning, it became more colorful after his trip to Italy. He was not influenced by the prevailing art movements, but always worked in his own realistic style and with a strong social commitment. (Wikipedia)
