  Belgian painter and sculptor who is considered the leading figure of Flemish expressionism.
  When World War I started, Permeke was mobilized and during the defense of Antwerp he was wounded in action near the town of Duffel
  During World War II, Permeke was forbidden to paint by the German occupiers as his art was seen by them as Entartete Kunst. Privately, things were even worse as his son Paul was arrested and sent to Germany as a forced labourer
  After the war, Permeke was appointed director of the National higher Institute and of the Royal Academy in Antwerp but after only one year he offered his resignation
