Kurt Peiser was an Antwerp artist of German origin. He was born in 1887 and died in 1962. He was a painter with great social and humanitarian concern. He was also a draftsman, watercolourist, lithographer and etcher. His style is realistic with impressionist and expressionist touch. He received his education at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp. Peiser was a student of Gerard Jacobs. Peolf's pupils included Rudolf Schönberg, Hermann Kosak and Jacob de Vries. He painted both navies, fisherman's life, life in and around the port of Antwerp and more emotionally charged images about poverty and misery. In marines he paints the sailor life that he himself experienced for ten years. On 4 June 1914 the artist came before the Antwerp court after paintings were removed from an exhibition. He was persecuted because of an attack on good morals. His graphic oeuvre, like his painting, is very extensive. He devoted a series of etchings to the port of Antwerp. Peiser was a member of La Gravure Originale Belge (Wikipedia).
