About the Artist

Henri QUITTELIER, Belgian, 1884-1980. A well-listed painter, draftsman, etcher, engraver, woodcut printer and lithographer, Henri Quittelier studied at the Brussels Academy under Emile Fabry (1865-1966), a leading symbolist, muralist and lithographer; Isidore Verheyden (1846-1905), a respected professor of painting after nature; Herman Richir (1866-1942), a former Prix de Rome, and under the influential Herman Jean Delville (1867-1953), another leading Belgian symbolist.

Quittelier tackled all genres: figures, portraits, landscapes, architectural views, religious compositions, interiors and marines. He also taught at the Academy of Nivelles, south of Brussels. He co-founded and for numerous years, was President of, Uccle Centre d’Art, in the Brussels suburbs. Symbolism and nostalgia for the past permeated the artist’s oeuvre and remained a constant inspiration during his entire life.
