Léon HERBO (Belgian, 1850-1907) ✿

Di spuma
e labbra di parole
è tale la battigia
che si accoccola i ricordi
come quando sei qui...

Léon HERBO (1850-1907) was a Belgian painter, best known for his portraits of women in casual poses. He also painted genre scenes; many with Orientalist themes. His wife often served as his model.
He studied at the Académie des beaux-arts de Tournai with Léonce Legendre, the Académie's Director, and completed his studies at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels from 1869 to 1874. He was ranked first in the preparatory competition for the Prix de Rome; travelling throughout Germany, Italy and France before settling in Brussels. He obtained honorable mention at the Exposition Universelle (1889).
Most of his paintings are in private collections. Some may be seen at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, the Museum of Painting and Sculpture in Kortrijk, and the Musée des Beaux-Arts Tournai.
