Frans Herpelinck was a teacher of Sciences at the High School St.-Stanislascollege at Poperinge (Flanders-Belgium).

He has a romantic mind and a very strong social feeling. Gradually he develops his own philosophical agnostic principles. He looks for the sense of things. He thinks finding it in what human beings themselves realise ethically and aesthetically. In his works there are reminiscences of earlier transcendental feelings. The warmth of his colours and the luminosity of his paintings reveal affinities with Turner.

His style is free, not conventional at all. " When something succeeds with me, then it succeeds with me from the moment that I am no more aware of what I am doing." (F. Bacon)
