Dumoulin Roméo

Roméo Dumoulin was a Belgian artist who was born in 1883 in Tournai and who died in 1944 in Brussels. He was a painter, draftsman, watercolorist, graphic artist and illustrator. Grew up in a printing environment in Tournai, where he became acquainted with lithographic techniques. Also took lessons at Sint-Lucas in Tournai and at the Academy in Cambrai. Found the inspiration for his often mischievous genre scenes and figures both in the city and in the countryside. In addition to these picturesque folk scenes (fairgrounds, parades, street scenes) he also painted landscapes, village and beach scenes and sunny scenes in a luministic color palette. Was also active in the publicity sector from 1918. Part of his oeuvre, about fifty important works, was destroyed during an exhibition in Rotterdam in 1940. He also gained fame as an illustrator, etcher and as a draftsman, he can safely sit next to other humorous masters such as Léandre, Daumier, Poulbot and Abel Faivre. Work in the Museums in Tournai, Charleroi, among others. Mentioned in BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (piron)
