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

Jean-Baptiste Fresez was born in France, however moved very early in his life with his family to Luxembourg.  When only 14, Fresez was awarded at the Luxembourgian drawing school.  He studied at the Academy in Brussels and then returned back to Luxembourg where he became a citizen in 1848. 

Before the beginning of his career as an artist, Fresez worked at Villeroy and Boch in Mettlach and at an architect’s bureau.  In 1824 he became teacher at a drawing school and later at the famous Luxembourgian Athénée.  The artist often traveled to Antwerp to study the Old Masters and there received a diploma of the Royal Academy of Beaux-Arts.  In 1857 he published 30 lithographs with views of Luxembourg, which were a huge success and facilitated Fresez’s membership at the Royal Archeological Society and the Institute of Beaux-Arts de Brussels.

Fresez mainly painted small, detailed landscape vedute paintings of his home country but also portraits of high society members of the time.  Because of the geographical correctness and the great amount of detail the landscape are of high documentary value.  The State Museum of Luxembourg has a collection of his works, others are held in private collections worldwide.
