Georges-Émile Lebacq (26 September 1876 – 4 August 1950) was a Belgian painter.[1][2]

Biography[edit]

Melle Lebacq 1926

A Post-Impressionist and Impressionist painter, Lebacq was alternately a watercolourist, pastellist and portrait, landscape and still life painter. He also painted church interiors (stained-glass windows and paintings). Certain works as "Lumière d'été à Vaux-le-Pénil" or "Le Repos en Terrasse" are impressionist. Initially self-taught, he first exhibited while a soldier during World War I. After the war he enrolled as a student at the Académie Julian at Paris in 1920, and thereafter worked mainly in France.[3][4]

Work[edit]

Most of the paintings of Lebacq are in the "Musée de la Venerie" in Senlis[5] or in private collections. Until recently, paintings of this artist were rather rare on the Art market. Emma Lebacq, wife of the painter, was a wealthy person. So she granted him for devoting body and soul to the painting but not to trade it.
