Berthe Dubail

Berthe Dubail (1911-1984) born in Leval-Trahégnies near Binche was a Belgian painter. She studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Mons and the workshop of monumental painting of La Cambre in Brussels, she then worked in Paris at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in free workshops. Parallel to her artistic research, she became a teacher in Mons and Brussels and developed a new teaching method that awakens and respects the spontaneity and the spirit of discovery of the student. After an early expressionist and figurative period from 1945 to 1956, she turned to a more abstract style.
