Jos Trotteyn (b. April 22, 1910, in Blankenberghe, Belgium-d. January 18, 2002)

Known as a surrealist-naturalist painter, his work cannot be classified in one single art movement.  Subjects of his work were dreams, fantasy, surrealist landscapes, women, masks.  Other people knew Jos as restorer of fine art by several old Flemish painters such as Pourbus, Van Eyck, Nicolaas de Liemaeckere, Justus Daneels  and many more recent painters as well.
After World War I Jos Trotteyn moved to Ghent together with parents and family and studied from 1919 to 1923 at the English Club in Ghent.  Later on he studied from 1923 to 1933 the art of drawing (teacher Domien Ingels) and decorative painting (teachers : Oscar Coddron, Frans De Boever, Fons De Cuyper) at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Ghent.  

In 1933, Trotteyn became a teacher at the private school Domien Steurbaut in Ghent.

During the 1940’s and 50’s Jos Trotteyn was influenced by the work of James Ensor, René Margritte and Paul Delvaux.

In 1971 on recommendation of Delvaux an exhibition with work of Jas Trotteyn was organized by the Belgian City of Veurne.

Jos Trotteyn’s work was shown during several exhibitions in 1945 in Aalst, 1967 in Ghent,  1968 in Den Haag 1973 at the City Hall of Mechelen and in 1974 at the Kursaal in Oostende.

The Berardo Collection in Portugal has acquired a work of Jos Trotteyn from his early period.

He was too independent-minded to belong to any art organizations.
