The original works are by Anne Rutten and Jos Damien.
Anne Rutten was born in Lanaken in 1898. In 1915 she met an artist from Hasselt, Jos Damien. From 1915 to 1922 he taught her how to paint. They continued their education at the Academy in Brussels. After her studies she returned to Hasselt and was assistant to Damien. Their collaboration lasted more than twenty years which resulted in over 700 canvases, usually of flowers and portraits including the Belgian princesses and Queen Astrid. Anne Rutten died in Waterschei in 1981.
Painter François Joseph Damien was born in 1879 in Noville-les-Bois in the province of Namur. Jos Damien had his first painting lessons from his father. He later attended training at the Academy in Liège and at the Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunsten in Antwerp. He completed his studies in Paris. In total he studied for 11 years. He focussed on portrait painting. Everyone who had made a name for themselves posed for him in his country including politicians, mayors, generals, magistrates, university professors. In the 1930’s he experienced a high point in his career when he was invited to the courts in Laeken and then in Luxembourg to paint the Royal and princely families. Jos Damien formed several students, including Charles Wellens and Anne Rutten, who was his assistant until 1947. He died in Schaarbeek in 1973.
