Jean Oosterlynck was born in Paris. He was of Flemish origin and studied at Courtrai and Anvers in Belgium. Influenced by Paul Klee, Oosterlynck looked to objects for their symbolic value - the dome of Sacre-Cœur against the Paris night sky, shuttered windows, the flutterof two birds in embrace, the simple objects of a stiff-life. His colour was strong and his objects are disposed in semi-abstract arrangements. An ability to create an image that imposes itself on the memory is perhaps his greatest gift.
