Guillaume-Charles-Liévin Delsaux (Willem) Delsaux (Ixelles, May 4, 1862 - Grimbergen, August 28, 1945) was a Belgian landscape painter, graphic artist and ceramist. He preferred an artistic career and trained in decorative painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels from 1878 to 1880. There he was taught by, among others, the landscape painter Joseph Quinaux. Delsaux did not agree with academic conventions and therefore his study story was short. Afterwards he took lessons for some time at the School of Fine Arts in Paris. After finishing his studies, he started living and working independently in Brussels. He was a member of the artists' associations L'Essor, Les Indépendants, L'Estampe and L'Union des Arts. Willem Delsaux mainly painted marines, cityscapes and landscapes. But he was also a skilled etcher, lithographer and sculptor. Delsaux took part in several exhibitions in Paris, London, Brussels, Ghent and Antwerp. He was given a retrospective exhibition at the Cercle Artistique de Charleroi in 1972.
