Born Brussels, into a wealthy family, (grandson of General Thys) he lived most of his short life at number 50 rue Defacqz, in a mansion built by the Art Nouveau architect, Paul Hankar. On his marriage in 1926 he moved to 268 avenue Louise. He is buried in the family vault at Dalhem, on the Meuse. Many of his poems are about Brussels, which in the 1920s was at its most beautiful, architecturally. This information has been taken from "Sur les pas..." See Credits in the New Visitors page.
