François Joseph Huygens (1820-1908)

A painter of fruit, floral, and game still lifes, François-Joseph Huygens enrolled at the Academy in his native Brussels, where he was especially influenced by his study of the Flemish and Dutch artists of the Renaissance.

Early in his career he worked as a decorator of porcelain with Jean-Baptiste Robie (1821–1910), whose lush, ornamental still lifes had a profound effect on his near-contemporary's developing style. Huygens exhibited regularly in Brussels, Ghent, and Antwerp; he also exhibited in Paris and London, where he was awarded a medal by the Royal Academy.
