Romeo Dumoulin (Tournai 1883-Brussels 1944)
Belgian painter and engraver

He oriented himself very early towards an art profession: after his primary studies, he became an apprentice at the Lithographie Saint-Augustin in his native town.
After the death of his father, he moved to Cambrai where he found another job in order to complete his artistic training at the academy of fine arts of this French city.
