Activity

1859 * Liège, Place Verte, 782 (premises of Michel Chargeur)
Painter. Pupil of Auguste Chauvin (1810-1884). His religious compositions were exhibited in Liège and achieved success. Abandoned painting in favour of photography. An advertisement pinpoints this transition during the initial craze for the carte de visite: "Artist - painter. Portraits of all types from 5 to 100 francs; cartes de visite, family groups for stereoscope" (La Meuse, 8.12.1859).
1862 - 1865 Liège, Place Saint-Lambert, 30
"Studio on the ground floor".
1865 */ Anvers, Rue des Tanneurs, 29
Predecessor: Deloeul Prosper et Cie
Son-in-law of Auguste Blanche. Rue des Tanneurs 29, then Minderbroersrui 42, in 1865. Thereafter he was registered as a painter at Ammantstraat 1, from 1865 until 1866, which also housed the newspaper "Le Précurseur", where his father-in-law lived behind his studio (Rue des Aveugles). Afterwards he lived in Rue Rogier, 5 from 1866 until 1867; in Brussels - Schaerbeek in 1867.
1865 */ Anvers, Minderbroedersrui, 42
1871 */ Ypres, Rue de l'Etoile, 9
Opening advertised of a painting and photography studio in the name of "Photographie Parisienne H. Grandmaison", with César Mitkiewicz as operator (De Toekomst, 1.1.1871). It must have had a very short existence. Grandmaison died in Egypt where he is said to have continued practising photography.
