Victor Creten (Brussels °1878 - Brussels °1966) was an artist who worked mainly with oil, watercolor and gouache. His subjects of preference included landscapes, seascapes and still lifes. Soon after his architecture studies, Creten decides to devote himself to his two passions: paint and nature. His move to Paris gave birth to many paintings of the Gardens of Versailles, his pastel-colored landscapes were dreamy and vivacious. After returning to Brussels, he mostly worked in the Parc de Tervueren, the seasonal changes of which he captured vibrantly, also serving as an illustrator for the Count of Aarschot's 1920 publication "Dans les Jardins du Duc de Brabant." In 1988, Creten was honored with a retrospective at Galerie B. Geerinckx in Brussels.
