° 12.2.1793; + 3.2.1861. Daguerreotypist and artist. A pupil at the "Académie de Bruxelles", he was a successful miniaturist. His portraits were "conspicuous for their sharpness and generally accepted as displaying a perfect likeness" (H. Hymans in "Biographie Nationale", vol. 16, col. 211). He turned to photography in the mid-1840s, one of the few established artists to take this step. He seems to have abandoned photography in the first half of the 1850s and reverted to his original career: he exhibited a miniature "portrait of a young lady" at the "Exposition générale des beaux-arts" in Brussels in 1854.
