CHARLES DOUDELET (Belgian / 1861-1938)

The Symbolist painter and printmaker Charles Doudelet was born Karel Gustav Doudelet in Lille in 1861. Doudelet studied both music and art in his home city. He was a friend of Maurice Maeterlinck, and was one of his first illustrators. Doudelet made his first engraving at the age of 28, exhibiting a copper engraving at the concours de Rome in Anvers, where he met the sculptor Constantin Meunier, who encouraged him to paint. Doudelet exhibited with the Cercle des XX in Brussels, and at the Salon du Champs de Mars in Paris. The art of Charles Doudelet was influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, especially Burne-Jones. Charles Doudelet died in Ghent in 1938.
