Biography from Anthony's Fine Art:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Gustave de Jonghe was born in Kortrijk, Belgium in 1829.  As a young man he studied with his father, painter Jean Baptiste de Jonghe, and later with Louis Gallait and François Joseph Navez, Belgium's most important pupil of Jacques-Louis David, in Brussels.

Following the style of his teachers, Jonghe's early works tended toward historical and religious subjects, portraits, and later, genre scenes.  In 1855 he moved to Paris where fellow Belgian, Alfred Stevens, was gaining notoriety for his paintings of elegant high-society women in their finery set in grand interiors.  De Jonghe easily adapted his style to emulate the popular Stevens and established himself as an important painter of the Second Empire's upper crust.

Several Paris engravers including Lasalle, Deblois, and Cooper popularized his best works through engravings.  His paintings earned him gold medals in Amsterdam in 1862, Paris in 1863, and Brussels in 1864, and knighthood in Belgium's "Order of Leopold."  This great success came to an abrupt end in 1882 when he suffered a debilitating stroke.  His poor health forced him to return to Brussels in 1884.  Blind and ill, he moved to Antwerp a short time later to spend the final years of his life.

Examples of his works are included in the museum collections of Antwerp, Brussels, Ixelles, Ghent and Kortrijk.
