Realized masses of drawings and watercolors in a loose, smooth, realistic and yet sensitive style. Controls color palette. From the press: ”J.V.G. was somewhere a philosopher in his bohemian way; he could thus tell of those obvious wisdoms and thus find the deepest of what is present in the daily events. A born artist, he revered all that was real and simple and expressed this in his lifestyle, disregarding fame and accolades.” Mentioned in the Lexicon of West Flemish visual artists I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists.
