Not much is known about the Belgian painter Raoul Le Jeune. However, he has been diverse in his subjects and style. He painted colourful flower still lifes in fiery tones. His portraits of women are often powerful and fauvistic in colour, sometimes they are significant in omitting superfluous lines or we see the influence of the French cubists from the avant-garde of the 1920s. He painted beach and landscapes with a different, softer and impressionistic palette, in the colours as he perceived them. He also made clever studies and watercolours of female nudes, who display a great talent for drawing.
