Biography Maurice Jean Micha
Maurice Jean Micha was born in Spa, Belgium in 1890. He painted
genre and urban scenes, figures, portraits, landscapes, still lifes,
Micha studied at l'Académie de Bruxelles and
traveled to Italy to see the great masterpieces of art and
architectural history. Micha and W. Paerels were friends.
Fauvism influenced Micha's style, but as his work matured, his palette
became more somber. Micha's boldest paintings are typical of the
Belgian Expressionists, including cubist elements and brush strokes
that create angular movement.
He created a fresco for the
Belgian pavilion at the 1939 New York World's Fair. The Musée
d'Ixelles owns some of Micha's work.
