Eugène Verboeckhoven's creative period fell into a historical epoch marked by major upheavals. Belgium declared its independence from the Netherlands after long struggles and Brussels became capital of the kingdom. Eugène was barely thirty years old at the time and had been deeply involved in the struggle for independence. Until that event, Verboeckhoven had spent his time searching. Already in the 17th century, Dutch artists had chosen animals as a motif. Eugène found inspiration in the horse portraits of Adriaen van de Velde and Abraham van Calraet . Anthony van Dyck also shows attempts to place animals in the choice of subject. Eugène Verboeckhoven goes on trips and collects sketches. He fills countless books with sketches of individual animals and figures. His goal is the naturalistic style of painting. The reproduction should be lifelike and free from distortion and interpretation. The approach of naturalism shows earlier eras. The advancement in painting and emerging prosperity at the beginning of the 19th century lead to a renaissance of naturalistic painting style.

Verboeckhoven created landscapes in his studio. Animals are a recurring theme. He drew sketches from his repertoire and put them together like a jigsaw puzzle. Characteristic is a lively blue sky, whose effect the artist achieved with an admixture of lapis lazuli. The depictions of animals testify to the painter's great powers of observation. His talent makes the paintings radiate a romantic atmosphere. Purchasing city dwellers show great interest in the. The works harmonize with the well-equipped salons and are free from indecent. A painting by Verboeckhoven is an idyll and not a social affront. Eugène Verboeckhoven was not only an artist, but also businessman and legend tell that the price of a picture was dependent on the number of animals on a painting. Less well-heeled art collectors got a smaller herd. A characteristic stylistic device Verboeckhoven is a deep horizon. The viewer is thus led to a level that evokes closeness and emotions. Verboeckhoven polarized during his lifetime, some were enthusiastic, as Vincent van Gogh wrote of a trip to his brother ... the beautiful things, even terrible things like life-size cows from the godly Verboeckhoven ....

A big fan of animal painting was the Belgian king. Eugène Verboeckhoven was commissioned to paint the queen's dog. It is not known how many paintings King Leopold I acquired. Later, an order for a portrait of a horseman and the appointment of the painter as knight of the Leopold order followed. © Meisterdrucke
