Jean Brusselmans (Brussel 13 juni 1884 – Dilbeek 9 januari 1953) initially worked as a lithographer and an engraver, but at the age of 20, he decided to focus solely on his painting. At first, he set out as a realist and impressionist painter, lateron he joined the movement of the Brabant Fauvistes. He developed a specific style and as he matured as an artist, his colorite and subjects became bolder and more expressed. Brusselmans developed a fascination for geometric motifs as well as patterns. He enjoyed the game of playing with lines, colours and fields. Jean Brusselmans’ art nowadays is regarded as highly artistic and is found in several Belgian public collections.
