In the 1930s, Cassel left his Parisian roots and ventured to the enchanting city of Bruges, Belgium, where he found new inspiration for his art. During this period, he formed a close friendship with Julien Schaeverbeke, a fellow Bruges-based painter. Cassel’s affection for Bruges led him to create the renowned painting “A View of Bruges,” which he proudly displayed in Paris in 1937 at the esteemed “Salons des Artistes Français.”

Cassel’s artistic talents were widely acknowledged, earning him accolades from King Léopold of Belgium and the prestigious Croix de la Légion d’Honneur from the French government.

After a life dedicated to art, Léon Cassel passed away in 1937 in his beloved Paris. Today, his paintings are cherished in both private and public collections, including museums in Bruges and Lille. His Impressionist masterpieces continue to captivate art enthusiasts around the world, offering a glimpse into his unique perspective on the beauty of our world.
