Marcel Caron (Enghien, 1890 - Liège, 1961) was born the son of a belgian decorator. He studied at the "Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de Liège". Learning sculpture and decoration he even exhibited with his father. As a painter he got inspired by the Flemish expressionists of the second school of Latem. In his work, he found a balance between the cubist forms as rigid sculptor on one side and elegant use of colors as decorator on the other side. We see a big influence here from Gustaaf De Smet, Frits Van den Berghe and Permeke as the figures are looking at us with their typical almond formed eyes. Different is the lesser contrast between light and dark shades.
