Wiertz, Antoine Biography

Belgian painter, born in Dinant. A precocious draughtsman, Antoine Wiertz was an admirer of Gericault. In 1820 he studies at the Antwerp Academy. His style shows the inspiration of Rubens along with reminiscences of medieval painters, but expresses humanitarian and even revolutionary overtones. This is combined with wild invention and a frequently erotic symbolism. His masterpiece is The Beautiful Rosine in which a beautiful woman is placed with a skeleton. The work is halfway between a traditional vanitas and Baudelairian meditation.
