Jos Bonvoisin Joseph Belgische schilder

Bonvoisin Jos

Joseph Bonvoisin was a Belgian artist, born in Liège in 1896 and died in La Roche in 1960. He was a painter, etcher, engraver and illustrator. He learned the engraving techniques on weapons at Landroux in Liège and made his debut in this specialty (1910-1913). He then continued his education at the Academy in Liège under the direction of E. Bergmans, A. De Witte, F. Maréchal (1913), followed the courses of the School of Art in Birmingham (1914-1917) and continued his studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts at the place des Vosges in Paris (1917-1919). He found his inspiration in the landscapes and forests of the Ardennes and the Fens, but also painted and etched figures, portraits, compositions, allegorical and religious subjects. He synthesized his landscapes to the essence. In 1947 he traveled to Italy and also brought landscapes from it. For the chapel of the Craft School in Bree (1942) he realized, among other things, a reredos and painted the murals in the Carmelite Basilica in Chèvremont (1956). He was also a designer of tapestries. From 1931 to 1960 he was a drawing teacher at the Academy in Liège. In 1961 he published Poèmes wallons gravis. We can find his work in the Musée de l'Art wallon and in the Print Room in Liège, among other places. Joseph Bonvoisin is listed in BAS I and Two Centuries of Signatures of Belgian Artists. (piron)
