Emile Louis Philippe Severeyns, ° 6.8.1851; + 28.9.1903. He was never formally registered at this address. Member of a family of lithographers; his father Guillaume worked in Brussels while the printing and lithography works of L. Severeyns were located at this Liège address in the 1860s and early 1870s. It was run by his elder half brother Louis Philippe Guillaume, sometimes referred to as Severeyns - Michel after his first wife whom he married in 1859.
Collective portrait of a sports club in 1873: "Mr Severeyns, the photographer and member of the "Société [liégeoise] de gymnastique", has been charged with making the print, which will go on sale and copies of which are displayed in his shop in rue de l'Université" (La Meuse, 11.7.1873). Founder member of the ABP. CVs of around 1876, "Photography E. Severeyns / Studio on the first floor". See also Photographie Parisienne [2]. It would appear that this was the only address at which Severeyns operated as a photographer.
Emile Severeyns moved his centre of interest to Brussels in the early 1880s: there is a joint imprint dated 1880 for "printing and lithography E. Severeyns", Liège, rue de l'Université and Brussels, Place Sainte-Cathérine, 14. Emile exhibited watercolours at the Brussels fine-arts exhibition in 1881, giving his address as Brussels - Saint-Josse, Rue de Liedekerke, 49. He lived in Brussels - Saint-Josse, Rue du Cadran, 21 and worked as a painter-decorator from 1882-1883 until his death.
