Theodore Bernard de Heuvel   Belgian   1817 – 1907

Theodore Bernard de Heuvel, a painter of portraits, had a preference for works of genre.  Often village scenes of schools and games, or interiors with family events, these paintings generally held an understanding and depth of appeal all their own.

Portrayal of scenes from everyday life was a major preoccupation of artists of the late 19th century.  Today, these same images provide an illustrated record of little known aspects of life of the past times; images that show the dominance of family life, generally in a happy vein, with its occupations and recreation.

Born in Eckloo, Belgium, DeHeuvel received his artistic education from Josef Geirnaert, a specialist in historical painting, at the Royal Academy in Ghent.  In 1840 he left for France, where he spent time in Paris and also traveled throughout the province of Brittany where he undoubtedly sought inspiration in the pleasures of rural life.  He returned to Ghent in 1850 before finally settling in Brussels.

Biography excerpted from the unpublished catalog by Edward P. Bentley for the Haussner Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, titled: Haussner’s, The Children.
