Edward Antoon Portielje (Belgian, 1861-1949)

Edward Antoon Portielje was born in Antwerp on 8 February 1861. He trained under Charles Verlat (1824-1890), who had taught at the Antwerp Academy since 1877 and became director of it in 1885. Like his father, Jan Frederik Pieter Portielje (1829-1908), a Dutchman, Edward Antoon Portielje devoted himself primarily to genre painting. His elder brother, Gerard Jozef Portielje, also made a name for himself as a painter. Edward Antoon Portielje died in his native Antwerp in 1949 in the age of 88.
