These are works of art that are newly on the market. Both direct purchase and consignment with permission to sell are possible.
During the year there are continuously works on show of the art of the Latem School.

Oscar De Vos is an art connoisseur and he has a profound love of paintings. Since 1968 he started concentrating on sculptures and drawings of artists who used to live and/or work in Sint-Martens-Latem. He has established a profound knowledge of the School of Latem thanks to the trust that individuals, museums and other art loving institutions have put in him. Through the years, Oscar has made a name for himself as a renowned and specialized art dealer. This is time and again confirmed by the participation of the gallery Oscar De Vos in various internationally oriented art fairs, such as PAN (Amsterdam), Classic (Kortrijk), Lineart (Ghent) and BRAFA (Brussels).
Each year, his gallery in Sint-Martens-Latem provides numerous artists- and theme exhibitions on the School of Latem. The artists are either representatives or protagonists of art movements and art styles such as impressionism, symbolism, pointillism, luminism, fauvism, neo-impressionism, expressionism and surrealism in Flanders. Artists such as George Minne, Emile Claus, Gustave Van de Woestyne, Valerius de Saedeleer, Gust. and Leon De Smet, Constant Permeke and Frits Van den Berghe are only a few of the famous artist’s names. Other internationally famous Belgian painters such as Paul Delvaux, James Ensor, Theo Van Rysselberghe and Rik Wouters also form part of the gallery’s important collection. For art shows and publications, gallery Oscar De Vos is working in close collaboration with (inter)national museums.
In 1992 and 2000 the gallery has published in collaboration with ‘Lannoo publishers’ two important art books on the School of Latem. The authors are respectively Piet Boyens (“Sint-Martens-Latem: Flemish Art, symbolism to expressionism”) and Johan De Smet (“Sint-Martens-Latem and Kunst aan de Leie 1870-1970”).
Since the year 2000 the gallery is located at Latemstraat 20 and is open every weekend from 2.00pm till 6.00pm. Please feel free to make an appointment for an expert’s assessment, a purchase or a sale.
