A quick work of a lady that
Henri Thomas was most likely very
impressed by. In his typical brush strokes
he made this portrait and has gifted
it to someone.

The painting is in good condition with a
beautiful, matching frame. Henri Thomas has a
decent record as shown by his
biography below - an excerpt from the Wikipedia

Henri Joseph Thomas studied
from 1895 to 1898 at the Academy
of Brussels. After his education, he started a studio
in Brussels and initially worked here mostly as
an illustrator of books of avant-garde writers
with line drawings and engravings. He painted
still lifes with flowers, mostly in vase on
table (Fleurs), female nudes, dancers,
genre tables, marines and he also made some

His career really began with his submission of the
painting Vénus de bar to the Godecharle concours
in 1909. He exhibited his work during the Belle
Époque in the Cercle Artistique et Littéraire in Brussels
in 1906, 1909 and 1921 and in the Société Nationale des
Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1906 and 1910. .

His depictions are preferably set at
night, often in the voluptuous atmosphere of adultery and
prostitution. His nudes take on suggestive poses.
Depictions of elegant fashionable women date
mostly back to the interwar period. In his depictions of
seductive women, he was a follower of Félicien Rops.

Henri Thomas lived at the Rue Hydraulique around 1907.
During the interwar period, he lived at the Rue de Berceau 28 in Brussels.
He died on 22 November 1972 in Brussels.
