Henricus Adrianus, ° 18.11.1841; + 22.12.1902. Publisher and printer, he had previously run a printing works in Den Bosch [NL] specialising in wood engraving, then in Vught [NL]. It went bankrupt in 1884. He moved to Brussels on 6.11.1886 and became managing director of the "S.A. Les Arts Graphiques" (see that name), successor to the "Société Royale Belge de Photographie". Publisher of the news weekly "L'Illustration Européenne", Bogaerts introduced photomechanical printing to illustrations within the pages of the periodical.
Bogaerts then moved on to London for a brief spell in November 1889 before returning to the Netherlands and settling in Boxtel [NL] in August 1891, founding the artistic printing firm "Kunstinrichting Peinture Bogaerts". The "peinture Bogaerts" process consisted of transferring a photographic image onto a light-sensitive canvas support which was then fixed and overpainted in oils. It was exploited by Bogaerts and then by his son Henri jr. in Boxtel until 1933. For the Brussels branch, "Société Belge des Portraits Bogaerts, that operated from 1900 to 1902, see the entry for W. Benschop & H. Bogaerts.
