Floris Jespers

Floris Jespers

Belgian painter and engraver, Floris Jespers studied at the Antwerp Fine Arts Academy and went on to meet a number of Belgian avant-garde painters, being part in the movement himself in the first half of the 20th century. One of the techniques he used throughout his career was that of 'verre églomisé', which consists of applying a sheet of gold or silver on the back of a sheet of glass, held in place by another sheet of glass and where the decoration or design is dry-point.
