This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Joseph Michotte was born in Brussels, Belgium on September 1, 1898.  A well schooled artist he first entered the Royal Academy of Beaux Arts in Brussels at the early age of 13 and was awarded his first Gold Medal there at the age of 21.  He left Belgium in 1940 at the beginning of World War II, traveling to Morocco, England, the Caribbean, Canada, and finally to the US.

He settled in New York City and found many Belgian friends who had attended the World's Fair in 1939 and had been stranded there by the war, unable to return home to Belgium.

He brought his wife, Linne, from Belgium to New York after the war, and they traveled together throughout the US and Mexico.  He was later commissioned by the Belgian Government to travel to the Congo, and paint the culture.  In this endeavor, he made three trips, and he had several exhibitions there.  However, most of his work from the Congo was destroyed during a later revolution.

In 1948, he won the first place medals at exhibitions at the United Nations and at Lake Success, New York.  He later won first place at an exhibition in East Hampton, New York and his work is now represented there at the East Hampton Art Museum. He also exhibited at the Cord Galleries in Southampton, NY, the Sagittarius Gallery (November of 1958), and the Park-Bennett Gallery, both in New York City.       

Joseph Michotte was primarily known for his Boudinesque style of painting.  He admired Rembrandt and French artist George Boudin.  He is best known for his paintings in oil and watercolor, pencil sketches, and etchings. Most of his etchings were done in the 1930s, and examples of these are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Ancient Art in Brussels.

He was a member of the Belgian Academy of Beaux Arts.

Joseph Michotte died in New York City in May of 1964.
