Fernand Toussaint (1873 - 1956)
Fernand Toussaint was born in Brussels, Belgium in 1873. At the age of fifteen he entered the Academy of Fine Arts of his native city where he studied under Jean Portaels, an innovative and demanding teacher who attached prime importance to the art of drawing. Thus, Toussaint received thorough formal academic training before leaving for Paris in 1891 where he completed his studies. There he met the great Alfred Stevens, who was then at the height of his artistic popularity, and with Stevens' guidance, Toussaint formulated his own individual style, combining elegance and fine draftsmanship with a free impressionistic handling of paint.
Fernand Toussaint passed away in 1956 and is remembered for his still-lifes and figurative subjects.
