Maurice Schelck (Aalst, 1906 - Ghent, 1978) was a Flemish painter. He studied at the art academies of Aalst, Brussels, Paris and Rome. He painted rural scenes, village figures, portraits and still lifes, and also ventured into abstracted landscapes. In his graphic work, his monumental figures remind him of Henri Permeke and Frits van den Berghe. Schelck became a leading figure in the artists' village of Sint-Martens-Latem since 1960, when he came from Aalst to settle in "Huize ten Wolken Jager", because he wanted to feel at the source of Flemish expressionism in this magical place. Schelck, together with Hubert Malfait and Vic Dooms, is considered one of the last followers of the Latem School. His works are in museums in Antwerp, Ostend, Aalst, Milan and Montevideo, as well as in many private collections in Europe and America (USA, Canada, Uruguay).
