Gaston Bertrand was one of the founders of the artists’ association Jeune Peinture Belge in 1945. This heterogeneous group wanted to promote young Belgian artists, both nationally and internationally. In contrast to earlier Belgian artists’ groups, this was the first association of artists that sought to make the artists known abroad as well. Bertrand initially worked in a figurative style. Later, Gaston Bertrand painted abstract with figurative elements. Nature and his familiar environment were his most important sources of inspiration. In addition, works were created with topics such as the Paris metro, Italian architecture and landscapes from the Provence. Gaston Bertrand regularly worked in series. Bertrand died in 1994 in Brussels.
