BIOGRAPHY

Borgerhout 1887 - Bruxelles 1970

As his father, Oscar Jespers practiced sculpture. He was formed at Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts. His first sculptures, dating from the 1920's, are Cubists. Later, in 1930, his style changed and evolved towards Expressionism. He exhibited alongside artists of this movement as in 1934 at the Kunst van Heden exhibition held in Antwerp. The sculptor mainly conceived heads, and nudes.
Nowadays, his artworks can be found in the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.
