Luxembourg painter remembered above all for his post-impressionist paintings of scenes on the River Moselle where he lived. Both his landscapes and his still lifes are distinctive in their bright colouring and their solid strokes which clearly bring out the main subjects.
In the mid-1920s, he was among those who reacted not just against the trends of the 19th century but also against the impressionists, inspired by artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cézanne. Together with Joseph Kutter and a group of other Luxembourg artists, he therefore broke away from the Cercle artistique de Luxembourg and became a co-founder of the Salon de la Sécession in 1927, inspired by secessionist developments in Munich, Vienna and Berlin.
He died in Luxembourg City on 29 December 1930, aged 36.
