Henri Thomas liked to paint women. Sometimes they are challenging, often also subdued in theater or cafe. The painter lived and worked mainly in and around Brussels. In the nineties he joined the Sillonists, a group of young painters who opposed the luminism and wanted to return to impressionism. Among these belonged Frans Smeers and Maurice Wagemans. In violent colours and bold forms they painted landscapes, elegant women and nudes. Thomas also painted the mundane life of the Belgian capital, where he showed himself to be a good observer. He also illustrated popular novels.
