Man or rather the people are almost always present” and“ The subjects of his works originate on Flemish soil, as it were seem to be permeated with light”. Exhibited at the Second December Salon of the National Association of Painters and Sculptors of Belgium in Brussels in 1939, at the Four Yearly Salon in Ghent in 1954, at the Galerie Leys in Brussels in 1958, in the Henri De Braekeleer room in Antwerp in 1960, several times in the company of his brother in the Martinushoeve in Zandvliet in the 1970s.
