One of the true Impressionists in Belgium, the work of Henri Roidot can be compared to that of his mentor, Emile Claus. Regarded as a Fauvist, his paintings are full of vivid block colors and intense light.
Born in Anderlecht in 1877, he studied at the Brussels Academy and whilst residing in that town first became a pupil of Emile Claus. Known for his pure landscape compositions,
Henri Roidot was a member of a number of prominent artistic circles including the ‘Vie et Lumiere’ and ‘Pour L’Art’. His work can be seen in Belgium at the museums of Brussels, Elsene and Bergen.
