Cassiers Henri

Henry Cassiers, was a Belgian artist, born in Antwerp in 1858 and died in Brussels in 1944. He was a painter and watercolourist. For a period of six years he was an architecture student under the guidance of P. Saintenoy. On Sundays he took classes at the Free Academy La Patte de Dindon, on the Grand Place in Brussels. He continued his studies at the Academy in Antwerp, where he received support and advice from Henri Stacquet. He was mainly a watercolourist. He painted landscapes and seascapes in warm colors, often in Flanders and Zeeland. He also found inspiration in sailors, fishermen and farmers. Henry Cassiers always emphasized the picturesqueness of his subjects in his work. He used a realistic design, characterized by a sense of light keys. He also worked as an illustrator (including Trois femmes de Flandre by C. Mauclair, works by E. Verhaeren and C. Buysse) and designed numerous posters. He was chairman of the Belgian Association of Watercolor Painters. He is mentioned in BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (Piron)
