J-B. Scoriel (Lambusart 1883 - Tamines 1956):
Jean-Baptiste Schorielle, "Master of the snow", was very early passionate about drawing and painting. He was orphaned in 1895 and worked in a factory (brickworks and foundry) to support himself, but nevertheless tried to attend the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Namur, where Théodore Baron was the director.
The landscapes of the villages of the Sambre and the Biesme are his favourite subjects. Signed J-B. Scoriel, he is part of the school of Emile Claus, where light is the main theme. Scoriel is in constant search of calm and light. From the 1920s onwards, he painted snowy landscapes, the "Neiges de Scoriel" (Scoriel's snows), which fascinated him and earned him his second nickname, first "Master of the Sambre" and then "Master of the Snow". In 1954, a retrospective exhibition was devoted to him......
The works of J-B Scoriel are present in numerous collections and museums, including the Province of Namur.
