biography of François Joseph Jean 'Frans' de Geetere

Frans de Geetere, who was raised in a family where art and music played a dominant role, chose a career as painter at a young age. Training followed at the Brussels Academy and in 1916 he made good his escape to Utrecht, where he became acquainted with Janus de Winter and other modernists from the city. His still lifes typically portray a deeper reality. ‘More than just the things observed, he also depicts feelings experienced’, one critic wrote in 1917. In 1920 he left for Paris and settled there permanently.
