Artist Biography:
Edmond Verstraeten was a luminist and pointillist painter of portraits and still lifes, but foremsot landscapes. Although he was a student of Jean Coosemans and received advice from Franz Courtens and Jean Rosseels, he was rather a self-thaught artist.
He worked a lot in Tervueren and Genk (1890-1894), but mostly in the area of the Durme. He made his first important exhibition in 1894 that became very successful. He was invited at the exhibitions of 1904 and 1911 by the avant-garde group «La Libre Esthétique».
He travelled to Russia in 1906 where he met with the famous writer L. Tolstoï. He remained a Realist painter who evolved, under the influence of his artistic friend Emile Claus, toward a more personal and powerful luminist colour use.
