Footnotes

  • Jespers was trained in the studio of Jean-Baptiste Van Wint where he learned to carve marble, stone and wood sculpture. At the same time he enrolled in the Academy of Anvers and studied there under Joseph Geefs. In 1885 Jespers opened his own studio and exhibited regularly at both the Societe des Artistes Francais and the Glaspalast of Munich. By the end of the 19th century he began to produce small carved ivory statuettes, and exhibited 'Love Disarmed' at the Exposition Universelle, Brussels in 1897.
