Saverys was already a welcome guest in the Latem milieu before World War I, when he took his first artistic steps with scintillating neo-impressionist works. Those early friendships continued, especially with Albert Servaes and Gustave and Leon De Smet. In 1922, Saverys had had a comfortable villa with studio built on the edge of Deinze by August De Smet, who also designed the 'Torenhuis' for Albert Servaes and later a house for Hubert Malfait's parents and a villa for Gustave De Smet. The lush garden of 'Ter Kauwkeshoek' gave directly on to the Lys. Saverys left the human figure for what it was and concentrated on the landscape. For decades and in all seasons, the river would form for him a never-ending source of inspiration.
