Schilderijen van Jos (Jozef) De Caluwe

De Caluwe Jos (Jozef)

Jos (Jozef) De Caluwe was a Belgian artist who was born in 1900 in Wachtebeke and died in 1980 in Sint-Gillis-Waas. He was a painter, decorative painter and restorer. Evening classes (1911-1916) and day courses (1961-1918) at Sint Lucas in Ghent and after the First World War at the Hogere Vrije Schilderschool of Oscar Hoge in Ghent (1918-1922). Also attended classes at the Sunday Academy (1922-1926) and architecture courses for four years. He mainly painted flower arrangements, but also portraits, landscapes, still lifes, hunting scenes and forest scenes from his own region. From the press: "Particularly in the lush combination of flowers with fruit, his works are strongly reminiscent of the rich tradition of the Flemish 17th-century masters because of their calm composition against a usually neutral background." Exhibited annually in his home in Wachtebeke and in the town hall in Zelzate. Worked professionally as a painter and decorator and teacher at the Hogere Vrije Schilderschool (1926-1937). Received the title of Meritorious Guardian in 1973. Source: Paul Piron, The Belgian visual artists from the 19th to the 21st century
