Jean Francois Portaels was born in the Belgian city of Vilvoorde. His father owned a brewery and was also mayor of his town. The young Portaels showed talent for drawing and painting at a very early age and as a teenager he spent most of his time in the alleys and squares of his home town, capturing urban life in pictures. When he was old enough, his family sent him to Brussels, where he began to study at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts. Director of the Academy at that time was François Joseph Navez, a very successful portrait painter who also had an excellent reputation as a painter of religious and mythological scenes. He was very fond of the young Portaels and even allowed him to work in his own studio. At the age of 23 the artist went to Paris. He continued his studies at the Ecole des Beaux Art and studied the Old Masters at the Louvre. Of course, he also gained access to the Parisian salons and was inspired by Orientalism, which was fashionable at the time. One of his teachers and a great role model was Paul Delaroche.

Back in Belgium Jean Francois Portaels won an important art prize, the Grand Prix de Rome. The prize money associated with this allowed him to travel to Italy, Spain and the Orient. Morocco, Algeria, Lebanon and Judea attracted him magically and were to remain his places of longing throughout his life. During the time of his travels, he produced well-known works such as "Resting Tambourine Player", " Portrait of a Young Arab Girl", "Landscape in Algeria" and "Portrait of Muhammad Ali, Viceroy of Egypt". In 1847 Portaels took over the direction of the Ghent Academy of Art for three years. During this time he married Marie Helene Navez, whom he knew from his studies with her father Francois Josef Navez. The couple had a son who tragically died in his first year. His wife also died early, in 1855, and Portaels moved into the house of his father-in-law Navez, from whom he also took over the private studio. Here he trained numerous Belgian painters of the next generation and created an extensive body of his own work. The Belgian royal family also held him in high esteem and he painted portraits of many family members and also taught some of them painting. At the age of over 50 Portaels began to travel again and lived permanently in Algeria for several years. At the age of 77 the artist died in Schaerbeek, Belgium. © Meisterdrucke
