Théo van Rysselberghe (Self portrait, 1916)


Belgian neo-impressionist painter, who played a pivotal role in the European art scene at the turn of the century.

Théo van Rysselberghe was one of the prominent co-founders of the Belgian artistic circle Les XX on 28 October 1883. This was a circle of young radical artists, under the patronage, as secretary, of the Brussels jurist and art lover Octave Maus (1856–1919). They rebelled against the outmoded academism of that time and the prevailing artistic standards.

He died in Saint-Clair, Var, France on 14 December 1926 and was buried in the cemetery of Lavandou, next to his friend and fellow painter Henri-Edmond Cross.
