Louis Buisseret (1888-1956, Belgian)

Louis Buisseret was Belgian painter, draftsman and engraver.
At the age of 16, Buisseret enrolled at the Art Academy of Bergen where he studied engraving and met Anto Carte, with whom he became friends. Later in life he was appointed a director of the Art Academy of Bergen, a position he had kept for 20 years.
In 1908, Buisseret started studying at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels under Jean Delville who had a major influence on Buisseret's later artistic work. In 1910, as a student Buisseret won the second prize in the Belgian Prix de Rome competition in painting and in 1911 he won first prize in the Prix de Rome competition in the engraving.

After the training was completed at the Brussels Academy, Buisseret and his father traveled to Italy to study the works of Italian artists of the Quattrocento and Cinquecento. During WWII Buisseret traveled to Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands.
Buisseret mainly painted realistic portraits, nudes and still lifes. From 1920 Buisseret took an active part in leading salons and gallery exhibitions in Belgium. In 1922 he married Emilie Empain, the model that often sat for him.

In 1927 one of Buisseret's work was refused at the Salon of La Louviere due to an obscene character. His friend Anto Carte took over the defense of Buisseret and blamed the salon an immature attitude. This incident was the prelude to the establishment of the group of artists Nervia in 1928 by Buisseret, Carte and Leon Eeckman. The group gave support to promising young artists. In 1929, he was awarded the silver medal at the Salon of Barcelona. That same year he became director of the Art Academy of Bergen where he also gave lessons in painting.
In 1947, Buisseret became a member of the Royal Academy and in 1952, Buisseret was elevated to Commander of the Order of Leopold.
