  • His work is overwhelmingly beautiful…

  • Even though there’s something eerie about these there’s also something very peaceful…

  • very unique style!

  • nice… totally love these.

  • Old but gold!

  • Very unique but i’m not totally love this.

  • lapetitefaon

    Wow, I really adore these, especially the second, they look like lovely ghosts!

  • As far as I’m concerned, Borremans is The King.
    His works show such a sense of loss. Painting’s strength is its ability to play with time and memory. Borremans has it cold.

  • that’s stunning! I love the original perspective he uses, and the atmosphere is so unique…

  • Eery and stunning. It has that in my opinion a perfect blend of realism and expressionism.

  • I like very much Borremans, thanks
