This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information, submitted July 2005 and updated December 2015, is from Jane Hoffelt, archivist of the artist's work. Her source is the artist's widow, Erika Bourguignon.


November 18, 1906: Born in Brussels, Belgium

1924: Begins to paint with A.-T.J. Bastien (1873-1955), a Post-Impressionist landscape painter

1928: First solo exhibition at Galerie d'Egmont in Brussels. Show is sold out.

1929-35: Studies art history at Université Libre de Bruxelles, with a thesis on El Greco. Travels to Corsica, Spain, North Africa, and Yugoslavia, as well as to Southern France and Italy. While initially heavily influenced by the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, he is increasingly drawn to the work of the Flemish Expressionists, with their emphasis on form, and the French Fauves, with their stress on color.

1934: Travels extensively throughout Europe and works in a variety of jobs: assistant to the Consul General of Haiti, writer and playwright, art critic, photographer.

1950-88: Settles in Columbus, Ohio, where his wife, Erika, is teaching at the Ohio State University. Paints and draws in graphite, gouache, and acrylics, drawing heavily on the visual images he collected in his travels. He begins to show his work, first in several one-person exhibitions at the Ohio State University and in other venues such as Grinnell College and the Blanden Gallery, both in Iowa, then at the Columbus Museum of Fine Art (now the Columbus Museum of Art) (1964), at Battelle Memorial Institute (1965), and in Edmonton, Canada, at the Jaycox Gallery (1966).

September 1988: (Columbus, Ohio) dies
