After winning the Prix de Rome he made a study trip to Rome in 1900. He was a sculptor and painter and from 1922-53 a professor in St-Gilles/Brussels. In 1922 he was a founding member of the Uccle Centre of Art and in 1941 member of the Academie Royale. He created the war memorial for those killed in action during World War I in Antwerp and Uccle.
