Gérard Willemenot

Gérard Willemenot (1943, Paris, France) graduated as an architect at the School of Art in Paris. After working 
asan architect for twenty years, he decided to dedicate himself full-time to an old hobby: painting. Ever since his first exhibition, Willemenot knew he had taken the right decision. He works with egg-tempera on panel. Inspiration sources for Willemenot are old masters as Bosch, Bruegel and Memling. The subjects and technique of these old masters extremely fascinate him. The still life paintings and the use of trompe l'oeil by the Flemish painters of the 16th and 17th century inspire him as well. Gérard Willemenot's work is represented exclusively represented by Morren Galleries in the Netherlands.
