Born on 26th August 1895 in Saint-Nicolas in Eastern Flanders, Robert Buyle was a painter who produced paintings with a diverse subject matter depicting country figures, nudes, landscapes, interiors and still-life. He was the son of the artist Ferdinand Buyle who produced portraits and floral still-lifes and nephew of Gustave who pursued an artistic career in Antwerp.

Robert did his artistic training at L’Académie de Saint-Nicolas and L’Académie de Bruxelles and then travelled across Europe seeking subject matter for his paintings. His early work showed a blend of Fauvism combined with Expressionism which had evolved in a distinctly powerful Flemish manner.

From 1924 onwards he exhibited regularly at Le Salon des Indépendants and Le Salon d’Automne. In his landscapes, he particularly liked to depict harvest scenes and his beach and coastal views were often peopled with fishermen.

The Kroller museum and the museum at Namur hold examples of his paintings.
