Henri-Jacques Bource, Belgian 1826 - 1899

Known as an able painter of landscapes, marines and portraits, Bource nonetheless found his favorite talent to be depicting scenes from the everyday life of fisherman and their families.

Born in Antwerp, Belgium, he was to enter the Royal Academy in that city.  There he studied under Baron Gustave Wappers, a historical painter of the romantic school, and Josef Dyckmans, a genre painter noted for his extreme finish.  The artist was likely influenced further through his travels as he was known to have spent time in Holland, Italy, Germany, Norway, England and France.  While in Paris in 1856 and 1857, Bource befriended and studied with Ary Scheffer, a romanticist who also occupied himself with scenes from works of the poets.

The artist exhibited with great success, winning medals in Rotterdam, Antwerp, Vienna and London.  He was awarded a Gold Medal at Brussels and also made a Knight of the Order of Leopold. 

Edmund DeTaeye wrote of his art: "He knew how to paint and excelled in the art of evoking highly moral sentiments, which were developed with simple and charming line."

Biography excerpted from the unpublished catalog by Edward P. Bentley for the Haussner Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, titled: Haussner's, The Children.
