Rene Carcan (February 25, 1925 - January 19, 1993) Belgium.

Rene Carcan was a prominent Belgian engraver and sculptor. He developed an artistic style which has been compared to Henri Matisse; one of distilling a vision to an essential essence. His use of color is superb and influenced by Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee.

In the 1970's his art focused towards dreamlike, imagined landscapes, half Tuscan, half Breughelian. He was also a daring colourist, favoring sun-warmed reds and oranges, sometimes lemon yellow, greens and azure blues- and of course the earth tones of Sienna.

A museum was established in Brussels at the site of his old studio, for the preservation and study of his lifeworks.

Rene Carcan's work is included in numerous private and museum collections throughout the world. His expertise is well known and world famous.
