Wilmet Louis

Louis Wilmet was a Belgian artist, born in Fosses-la-Ville in 1881 and died in Genval in 1965. He was a painter, watercolorist, graphic artist, geographer and author. He was self-taught. He realized religious scenes and wall paintings in churches, but also portraits, character studies, figures, genre scenes, stable interiors, forest views, landscapes and seascapes. He found his inspiration in the Ardennes, the Kempen and Brabant, but he also often lived and worked in Brittany. He worked sporadically in Provence and England. As a portraitist, he painted Breton fishermen as well as romantic young women or personalities such as Monseigneur Breynat and Princess Joséphine of Belgium. He painted, among other things, An Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the abbey in Grimbergen, Stations of the Cross in the church in Wavre (1928) and in Pretoria/Transvaal (1930-1931), The life of Saint Peter in the church in Maubroux/Genval ( fresco, 1926). Louis Wilmet also worked as an author, poet, art critic and writer of folkloric articles in many Belgian magazines and newspapers. He exhibited in the Hall Oor in Antwerp in 1928. He is mentioned in BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (Piron)
