Van Cleemput Jean

Jean Van Cleemput was a Belgian artist, born and died in Brussels (1881-1953). He was a painter, draftsman and graphic artist. He was the brother-in-law of Jean Brusselmans. He was educated at the Academy in Brussels under the direction of C. Montald. From 1898 he went on to complete his studies in Paris. He also worked there as a restorer for the Louvre. He has realized landscapes, city and seascapes and interior scenes, among other things. He managed to give his realistic design an impressionistic elegance, so that some of his works approach the style of F. Smeers. He then gradually moved in the direction of the Fauvist synthesis and at a certain point leaned close to Brusselmans' design. He exhibited for the first time at the Triennial Exhibition in Brussels in 1898. Together with A. Bastien, he organized the first exhibition in the Rood Klooster in Auderghem. He took part in the "Exhibition of the Humorists" in London. His work can be found in the Print Room in Brussels, among others, and various Grimberg faces (ca. 1925) in the collection of the municipality of Grimbergen. He is mentioned in BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (piron)
