Adolph Alexander Dillens (1821-1877)

Born in Gent on January 2, 1821, he received his formal training from his older brother Hendrick Joseph Dillens (1812 – 1872) and studied at the academy in Ghent.

Like his brother, Adolph specialized in genre scenes and portrait painting; however he was also an accomplished engraver and drawer.  He spent a majority of his career working in Zeeland where he became known for his scenes of that region's daily life.

At the end of his life Dillens turned to painting historical and military scenes from Flemish life, such as Enlistment in the Austrian Netherlands (Brussels, Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts).

Today his works can be found in museums in Brussels, Ixelles and Brugge

He had two sons, the painter Albert Dillens (b.1844) and the sculptor Julien Dillens (1849-1904)
