He was primarily a reproduction engraver and was one of the first to make colored etchings, each time trying to reproduce the local atmosphere in his landscapes and cityscapes. Through a subtle sense of touch, his portraits became true-to-life images. Exhibited at the 'Exposition universelle et internationale de Bruxelles' in 1910.
