About Victor Honorius Janssens

Son of a tailor.

Notes

From The Flemish school of painting By Alphonse-Jules Wauters (1885). Page 382

National art is always a faithful reflex of the public mind, and the low state to which it had fallen • plainly manifests the universal depression. This is the time of J Gaspard Van Opstal(1654— 1717) and of Robert Van Oudenarde (1663— 1743), both painters of sacred history and of portraits ; of VICTOR HONORE JANSSENS (1664—1736), whose large allegorical and historical pictures (pot-boilers) so long excited admiration in Brussels ...

From Bulletin, Issues 11-20 (Google eBook) Société archéologique du Midi de la France 1893 - France. Page 84.

Le prénom du peintre disparaît dans la partie sombre du terrain. S'agit-il d'Abraham Janssen, peintre flamand dont les ouvrages se font généralement remarquer par un coloris brillant et une facture magistrale? M. le B°n de Bouglon attribuerait plutôt l'œuvre à Victor Honorius Janssen, peintre belge distingué, qui résida longtemps à Rome et peignit de nombreux sujets empruntés à l'Histoire ou à la Fable dans une manière claire et égayée.

Les traditions de la famille d'Aiguesvives, d'où le cabinet est provenu par héritage au marquis de Bon, veulent que ce meuble ait été le cadeau d'un pape à un membre de là famille qui accompagnait une ambassade française à Rome.

Translation:

The death of Eurydice, which occupies the left pane, gives the signature: "Jannsen fecit."

The name of the painter disappears into the dark part of the land. Is it Abraham Janssen, Flemish painter whose works are usually noticed by bright colors and a masterful bill? Mr. B n ° Bouglon rather attribute the work in Victor Honorius Janssen, distinguished Belgian painter, who lived long in Rome and painted many subjects taken from history or fable in a clear and brightened.

The traditions of the Aiguesvives family, where the firm originated by inheritance to the Marquis de Bon, want this piece was the gift of a pope to a family member accompanying a French embassy in Rome.
