Oswald Poreau was a realistic draftsman and painter, of luminist tendency, also engraver and lithographer. He was born in Shaerbeek, municipality of Brussels, in 1877 and died in Waterloo, Belgium, in 1955. Of French origin, he was born and raised in Brussels. After his secondary studies, he prepared to enter military school and began studying architecture at the Academy of Brussels, taking courses in drawing and painting at the same time. He won the first prizes for drawing, architecture, perspective and medals for painting and composition. He was a promising and brilliant student who was trained from 1895 to 1900 by Joseph Stallaert and Joseph Quinaux, Belgian painters, and in architecture by Ernest Acker, Belgian architect. In 1905, he married a musician friend. The couple moved to Paris. Oswald Poreau continued painting by staying in the village of Barbizon, which was the heart of the eponymous school. He then returned to Belgium and traveled extensively through Europe, visiting England, Germany and frequently Brittany. His wife's illness causes him a lot of difficulty and affects his work. He then found support and help from a musician and painter friend, Yvonne Vonnot-Violet (1883-1936). Oswald Poreau paints landscapes, industrial and port views, flowers and portraits like that of Yvonne Vonnot-Viollet. He often plants his easel on the banks of the Scheldt and on the banks of the Meuse, thus practicing outdoor work. The artist left an abundant production of paintings, drawings, monotypes as well as etchings. In addition, having continued his training in Paris in 1905 and being very active in Barbizon, he is not associated with the School of Barbizon by his works. Oswald Poreau then traveled extensively across Europe. During his numerous travels, he takes notations on the spot of views from nature with a technicality, a movement and a striking accuracy. Movement is a reality in his travels, but also in his working technique, through the immediacy of his seizures; that he takes in view of final and completed canvases in his studio, developed from these notations. These studies taken on the spot were numerous, all kept in his studio. His native country does not forget the artist and perpetuates his memory. Thus, in Molenbeek, in Josaphat Park, among the statues in the park, we can find the portrait of Oswald Poreau, in the form of a medallion. His works are mostly owned by the royal family of Belgium. One can thus discover some in the museums of Shaerbeek, birthplace of Oswald Poreau, Temse, and Bergen. However, some works are possessions acquired by individuals.
