¶ Herman Jacobs was a painter and draftsman who studied at AKA in Antwerp (Léon Brunin) and became professor of painting at the Scuola Svizzera in Rome where he held an atelier in the Vatican: Jacobs was portrait painter (court painter) of three popes after life (Pius XII, Pope Paul VI and John Paul II), thanks to which his work gained a place of honor in the museums of the Vatican.
In his art Herman Jacobs was inspired by his very personal, intuitive perception, which is externalized in a sacred, dreamy transcendence. The subconscious is translated in colour and light, in transparency and reflections.
