Edouard Verchaffelt

Originally from Belgium, Edouard Verschaffelt spent most of his life in Algeria, in Bou Saâda, where he died in 1955. Trained at the Fine Arts Schools of Ghent and Antwerp, he was attached to his Flemish heritage and to the Impressionist developments of the time, but it is above all for his Orientalist work that he is known today. Indeed, five years after a first trip in 1919, he settled permanently in the oasis of Bou Saâda and married a young woman of the Ouled Sidi Brahim tribe. It is in this Saharan region that he will find the subject of his works, bearing direct witness to the Algerian reality that he encounters on a daily basis.
