Gratien Dendooven

1939, Belgium


Gratien Dendooven is a Belgian painter born in 1939 in Lissewege. In 1958 he participated for the first time in a group exhibition in the West-Vlaanderen Kunstkring, shortly after he won the Prix Jeune Peinture Belge with distinction in 1959.


In his paintings he displays a clear authenticity and an unspoilt use of colour. His subjects show a personal and idiosyncratic view of religious subjects, nature or folkloric subjects.
