Happy Birthday Edgar Scauflaire!! Belgian muralist and decorator, this artist was born today in 1893. After posing for an artist, he became inspired to become an artist at age 11. He studied art at l”Academie des Beaux-Arts, in Liege, Belgium, the city where he was born. The oil painting on panel, Mikado, shows Cubist influences. Although his work became well-known in Belgium and was included in many official showings of Belgian work, I found it extremely difficult to locate biographical information on the artist.
