Jan Delanghe was a Belgian artist who was born in 1933 in Schorisse and who died in Overboelare in 2009. He was a painter and sculptor. Training at the Academy in Ghent. Painted portraits, nudes and landscapes. Initially influenced by the design of B. Buffet and thus painted a series of clowns. Subsequently, landscapes arose, peasant figures in a gloomy expressionist color palette, related to the school of Latem. Then his palette softened again and he painted still lifes, nudes, Flemish landscapes, children's figures and images of saints. Initially he mainly worked with warm colors and a barely noticeable play of light. In retrospect, he put a more monumental and refined interplay of form and color in his works.
