ERNEST JEAN JOSEPH GODFRINON
Born at Elsene in Belgium in 1878, Godfrinon studied at the Academies of Ixelles and Brussels, and was primarily regarded as painter of landscapes, still lifes and intimiste genre scenes.
He exhibited one of his paintings ‘Begonias’ at the Galerie des Tout-Petits over the winter of 1925 – but aside from this specific detail little is known of his exhibition career.
Godfrinon was a member of ‘Le Sillon’ group and his work has subsequently found its way into the collection of the museum of Sint-Joost-ten-Node in Charlier in Belgium – the painting is titled ‘La Serre – La Jeune fille au miroir.’
Godfrinon died at Schaarbeek in 1927.
