Morren George

George Morren was a Belgian artist, born in Ekeren in 1868 and died in Brussels in 1941. He was a painter and pastellist. He followed his education at the Academy in Antwerp and he was a student of E. Claus. He then completed himself in Paris led by F. Roll, E. career and Puvis de Chavannes. He made figures, landscapes, portraits, sunny interiors with girls' figures, genre scenes and still lifes. In the beginning he was attracted to impressionism and in his early works a relationship with A. Renoir is often noticeable. Around 1890 he worked in pointillist design for a short time, but he soon evolved to Luminist work (Vie et Lumière). The lighting continued to fascinate him, but gradually the shapes became more pronounced and the colors brighter. His works were always very French -oriented and intimistic subjects continued to enjoy his preference: women caught in their intimacy or depicted in sunny gardens. He often worked in France and settled in Saint-Germain-en-Laye in 1910. He was co -founder of the Association Pour l’Art, in 1904 of some (this was the precursor of art of today, of which he later also became a member) and Van Vie et Lumière. A retrospective of his work from the period 1892-1925 was held in the Georges Giroux gallery in Brussels in 1926. In 1931 a second individual exhibition was held in the Palace of Fine Arts in Brussels. We find work by George Morren in the museums in Brussels, Antwerp and Liège. He is mentioned in Bas I and two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (Piron)
