Joseph Lacasse (Belgian 1894-1975)

Lacasse must be considered as one of the most individual abstract painters of the École de Paris.
When in 1912 Kandinsky published a manifesto about abstract art, he did not know that his theories had already been put into practice by the Belgian teenager Joseph Lacasse. Whereas Kandinsky reached abstraction through a solid intellectual preparation, Lacasse found himself on the same road through pure intuition.
