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

Charles Hermans was a Belgian painter. He was born into a bourgeois family, but that status never hindered his artistic aspirations.  In Brussels, Hermans was a pupil of the painters François-Joseph Navez and Louis Gallait, and then he went through the workshop St. Luc in Brussels.  It was a workshop that was a free alternative to traditional academic education.

Between 1858 and 1861, he studied with the painter Charles Gleyre at the Ecole Centrale des Beaux-Arts, an art school official Paris. From 1862 to 1867 , Hermans remained in Italy, where he became fascinated by the monastic life of Rome, the monks being for him, a scrupulous observer, a favorite subject of many paintings of 1866 to 1869 .  He later several more trips, especially in the Mediterranean region and in Spain in particular.

Hermans was a member of the Association Free Society of Fine Arts, founded in Brussels on 1 March 1868.  This organization brought together several renowned Belgian artists who worked in naturalist style such as Charles De Groux, Alfred Verwee, Constantin Meunier, Louis Dubois, Louis Artan Saint-Martin, Felicien Rops, Eugene Smits  and Theodore Baron.

Hermans also participated in major international exhibitions such as the art section of the Universal Exhibition held in Paris in 1878, where he showed the painting, At Dawn.  His paintings were acquired by museums, both in Belgium and abroad.
