De Vuyst Jos Nic

Jos Nic De Vuyst was a Belgian artist who was born in Ghent in 1896 and who died in Sint-Amandsberg in 1946. He was a draftsman, painter and watercolourist. Largely self-taught, but nevertheless followed a short training at the Academy in Ghent under J. Delvin. Heavily wounded during the First World War, he recuperated in Paris and met Poulbot and Marcel Dubois, among others. After the war he stayed again in Paris to perfect himself and painted impressionistic faces, which he exhibited in Ghent in 1921. Lived for a long time in the Pand in Ghent, afterwards on a houseboat on the Ghent canals. Found his inspiration from 1924 in, among other things, religious and folk scenes (carnival, Ghent festivals), folk types, landscapes, forest views, village and (Ghent) cityscapes. His figures often come across as cheerfully playful, sometimes ironic and caricatured. His landscapes, on the other hand, usually exude a tender, dreamy melancholy. Loved gloomy tonalities, but still managed to achieve light effects in his works. Mentioned in CRICK, BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (piron)
