Fernand Khnopff was not only one of the main exponents of the so-called Belgian symbolism, because he had a lasting influence, but also a painter highly esteemed in Paris and London. Although he was attracted throughout his life to art and especially painting, he began at the then place of residence of the family, Brussels, at the urging of his father, first a study of law. But after a short time, at the age of 20, he began training at the Brussels Art Academy, where he had such famous teachers as Jean-François Portaels and Xavier Mellery. At first he devoted himself to portraiture and often painted naturalistic landscapes.

First changes in his preferences followed after Khnopff gained important inspiration on various trips to Paris and England. In particular, the artists of the Pre-Raphaelites, who were at that time mainly influenced by Edward Burne-Jones and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, had done to him. But also a meeting with the French painter Gustave Moreau is considered groundbreaking for the development of Fernand Khnopff, who devoted himself henceforth to symbolism and liked to integrate mystical elements in his works. Although he spent a lot of time in Paris and later in London, the art scene of his native Belgium was still close to his heart. For example, together with James Ensor and others, he founded the Société des Vingt artists' association, which was directed at Belgian and Belgian artists. After further studies in Paris at the prestigious Academy Julian, he moved to London for a long time, where he frequented many of the admired artists of the Pre-Raphaelites.

One of the most important creative periods of Fernand Khnopff is the time from his first exhibition at the Paris Salon in 1884, in whose subsequent years he created a total of 34 very detailed portraits. His favorite model was his sister Marguerite, with whom he shared a house in Brussels. Not only did Fernand Khnopff excel in his paintings, but he was also a sculptor and correspondent for the British art magazine "The Studio", for which he mainly talked about the art scene in Brussels. The clear style of Fernand Khnopff inspired many of his colleagues. He is seen by experts as one of the pioneers of German symbolism with his prominent representative Franz von Stuck. Another artist, who was very impressed by the works of Khnopff, was the well-known Austrian painter Gustav Klimt, who became aware of him through an exhibition in Vienna. © Meisterdrucke
