ALBERT BAERTSOEN (Belgian / 1866-1922)

The Belgian Impressionist Albert Baertsoen was born and died in Ghent. Baertsoen was a painter and etcher of city scenes. He studied at the Ghent Academy of Art under Jean Delvin. After exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Français in 1887, Albert Baertsoen moved to Paris. Baertsoen furthered his studies in the atelier of Alfred Roll, where he became friends with the artists Edmond Aman-Jean and Charles Cottet. It was under their influence that Albert Baertsoen freed himself from the strict realism of the Termonde School, and re-oriented his art towards Impressionism. Baertsoen spent the years of WWI in London, with his friend and compatriot Émile Claus, painting in the studio of John Singer Sargent. There was a retrospective of the art of Albert Baertsoen at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Ghent in 1972-1973.
