Jules Van de Leene
Jules Van de Leene (Ixelles °1887 - Auderghem °1962) received education at "Académie d'Ixelles" and further on at the “Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts” in Brussels. Spending a lot of time in Holland and France he painted landscapes, "marines" and still lifes. On the one hand, green and teal were colors August Renoir and Claude Monet typically used in their paintings. On the other hand, a classy lady with a parasol and the nature in the background was a composition often painted by Monet. These two aspects refer to the fact impressionism might've been an inspiration here. Van de Leene adds his personal touch with that what he's known most for, watercolor. Finally, his works have been exposed in museums of Bruges, Ixelles, Kortrijk, Brussels, Le Claire, Pau, Tokio et Kaunas.
