Albert Lentacker has been painting portraits for an incredible 50 years. Now 72 years old, Albert has been working as a professional portrait artist since leaving the Royal Academy of Art Saint-Nicolas, Belgium in 1956. "An artist must not only capture a likeness, but also a sense of presence, character and time. To paint people is to create a definite presence on a canvas. The stronger the presence, the more successful the portrait" Albert Lentacker. Now living and working in Belgium, Albert is available for commission.
