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

Paul Daxhelet (French, 1905-1993)

A multi-talented and diverse artist, Daxhelet first exhibited as an engraver.  However, he was also a skilled draughtsman and painted in both oils and watercolors.  He began his studies at the Art Academy of Liege before advancing to the Academe Julian in Paris. He also received instruction from Hermann-Paul and Raymond Renefer.

In addition to working in diverse mediums, Daxhalet was attracted to a wide variety of subject matter for inspiration.  The sporting world, in particular the art of pugilism, captured his attention and became a favored subject of many paintings.  His extensive world travels throughout India, the Far East, South America, Polynesia, Morocco, Senegal and East Africa also sparked his creative expression.

His use of broad brush strokes and bright colors contributed to the growing abstraction of his work over his life.  In some later instances, his paintings took on a surrealist quality that was highly regarded.

Daxhelet is listed in Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs by Benezit, and Davenport's Art Reference Guide.

Paul Daxhelet
1905-1993)

Belgian artist Paul Daxhelet was born in 1905 in Liège. A multi-talented and diverse artist, Daxhelet first worked as an engraver. However, he was also a skilled draughtsman and painted in both oils and watercolors.

He began his studies at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Liège, where he was the pupil of François Maréchal and Jacques Ochs, before advancing to the Academie Julian in Paris in 1926. He also received instruction from Hermann-Paul and Raymond Renefer. Daxhelet later became an instructor at the Liège academy, where he taught from 1957-1970.

In addition to working in diverse mediums, Daxhalet was attracted to a wide variety of subject matter for inspiration. The sporting world, in particular boxing, captured his attention and became a favored subject of many paintings.
