Armand Vander Syp (also: Vandersyp, Vander-Syp) came from Schaarbeek and lived at the Lefrancqstraat, 68, in Brussels. In addition to being an excellent oil painter, he was also a masterful watercolorist. In 1890 he exhibited together with Valerius De Saedeleer and Jules Gadeyne in the casino of Blankenberge.

His name appears in the catalog of the ‘Algemeene Tentoonstelling van Schoone Kunsten’ from 1893 in Brussels with “Marsh in the Campine” and “Violierbloemen”. According to Frans Pas (Chapter 6, p. 3) he also exhibited in 1894 “Dan une salle de l’ex-hôtel Verhaeghe” together with, among others, Jan Stobbaerts (1838-1914), Jan Verhas (1834-1896) and Alfred Verwee (1838-1895).

Armand Vander Syp also appears in the New York Times catalog (February 1900) with the results of the Hilton Art Sales with a work “Nathalie”, at the time sold for $100.00,-.
