Henri Ramaeker

‘Ramah’ was the nom-de-plume of Henri François Ramaeker, born in Sint-Joost-ten-Node in September 1887. He seems to have had little official training, although he did attend a fine art course. He worked in many genres and media: oil paint, watercolour, pastel and pencil; he produced etchings, engravings, illustrations and cartoons. He is included amongst the fauviste artists of Brabant. Having made quite a lot of money as a portraitist of celebrities, he abandoned this calling to follow his own leanings, experimenting with Cubism and Orphism. In 1913 he produced 15 etchings to illustrate Les villages illusoires, a poetry collection by Emile Verhaeren, originally published in 1895 but then reissued as a collector’s edition – the binding by Henry van de Velde and the text designed by Georges Lemmen.

Works in public collections include those in the museums of Anvers and Brussels.
