    The life of the Belgian painter, watercolourist and lithographer Emile Gastemans largely took place in Antwerp. He took lessons at the academy for a short time and was active in the traditionally tinted artists' association 'Als Ik Kan'. Gastemans found his subjects in the hard life along the ruver Scheldt: the porters, the pubs, the girls of pleasure. After the First World War, he frequently travels to southern Spain, which strongly influences his subject matter. The subjects become lighter, his style approaches that of the French impressionists. As a lithographer Gastemans contributed to publications, including the historical novel 'Le Réformateur d' Anvers'.
