(1873 Brussels, Belgium - 1955 Tervuren, Belgium)
After attending the Academies of Gent and Brussels, Bastien spent time at the Beaux-Arts in Paris. There he studied the paintings of Courbet and Delacroix. He was also influenced by the Impressionists. Like the Impressionists, he focuses on the affects of light and developed a discrete luminism that characterizes his portraits and landscapes. Bastien taught at the Brussels Academy where he became Director in 1928.
