Huile sur toile - Non signé(e) - 19th Century

Eugène Verboeckhoven studied with his father, Barthélemy Verboeckhoven, a sculptor. In 1816, he worked with Voituron in Gand. In the first half of the 19th century, salons were a home for flourishing art. Verboeckhoven was a regular participant in Gand (1820 and 1824) and Bruxelles Salons (1827-1860). He visited Ardennes, France, Great Britain (1826), Germany (1828) and Italy (1841). It has been highly regarded and has elaborated works by artists such as De Jonghe, De Noter, Koekkoek, Daiwaille, Kheelhof, Verheyden and his pupils Louis-Pierre Verwee and the Tschaggeny brothers. He was a member of the academies in Brussels, Gand, Antwerp, St. Petersburg and Amsterdam. [1]

Verboeckhoven was an excellent painter of animals. Between 1841 and 1842 he visited Italy, Switzerland and Scotland. His inspiration remained the same and his technique unchanged, but his notebooks were now full of sketches of landscapes

Like many of his colleagues, Verboeckhoven was a Freemason. He entered the Brussels Lodge in 1834 with his brother Charles-Louis, a well-known seascape painter, and his initiation took place on 25th February 1834. Shortly after he joined, he proposed founding a museum of the Freemasons. He was very attached to his philosophical beliefs, and from 1834 onwards and systematically after 1850 he added the triangle of three Masonic points to his signature. Eugène Verboeckhoven died in Schaerbeek, Brussels, in 1881. His works are exhibited in museums all over the world.
