Louis Gallait Art

1810-1887

Louis Gallait was a Belgian artist born in Tournai in 1810. He was a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Tournai, he completed his training in Antwerp. In 1833, he exhibited Christ healing the blind in Brussels, a painting much appreciated by the public and which was bought by public subscription for the cathedral of Tournai. The following year, he went to Paris and worked in the studio of Paul Delaroche. Back in Belgium, Gallait created a school of history painting in a romantic style. Highly esteemed in France, he received orders for several historical paintings for the museum of the history of France, created by Louis-Philippe in a wing of the Palace of Versailles. He also had many portraits commissioned, drawn or painted. He produced the portrait of George Sand and Frédérique Chopin, who met in Paris. Many of his works are present in Belgian Museums, such as the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels.
