Wolvens Henri Victor

Henri Victor Wolvens was a Belgian artist born in 1896 in Brussels and died in 1977 in Bruges. His artist name was a pseudonym for Wolvenspergens, Henri Victor. He was a painter, graphic artist and draftsman. Education at the Academy in Sint-Joost-ten-Node with H. Ottevaere, during two years of sculpting at the Academy in Sint-Gillis, worked in 1921-1922 in the atelier Labor in Ixelles and Uccle. First individual exhibition at the G. Giroux gallery in Brussels in 1925. Traveled to Prague in 1929-1931 and worked in France, in the Ardennes (Houffalize) and on the Belgian coast. After his marriage in 1930 he settled permanently in Bruges. Expressionist and animist. Always found his inspiration in his immediate environment. The main concern in his works always remained the light. He distinguished himself from other animists, such as A. Van Dyck, W. Van Overstraeten and A. Dasnoy, through his dynamic technique and a dominant visual experience of reality. Initially painted rather pessimistic-looking metropolitan neighborhoods, small stations, figures on the fringes of society, interiors, but fell under the spell of light and became the painter of seascapes, the harbor, the beach and seaside walkers. However, he also painted (children's) portraits, figures, landscapes and still lifes. Worked in generous and thick layers of paint and smudges, powerful and colorful and with special attention to the atmosphere and the light. Was a member of Compagnons de l’Art, Orientations, Jeune Peinture Belge, Kunst van Heden. Work among others in the Museums in Brussels, Antwerp, Ixelles, Ostend, Bruges, Liège. Listed in the Lexicon of West Flemish artists III, BAS II and Two centuries of signatures by Belgian artists. (PIRON)
