Alfons Proost parents owned a Waffle stall with which they dwelled all the fancy fairs of Belgium. An anecdote characterises the young painter: " He painted in all the corners of his parents establishment, so that his father threatened him to bake waffles on his painting box if he didn't come to the furnace to bake himself."
