Khnopff, Fernand
(1858-1921)
   Born in Grimbergen-lez-Ter-monde on 12 September 1858, painter Fernand Khnopff studied at the Académie des Beaux-Arts and was later a student of Xavier Mellery. A founding member of Les XX, he emerged as a principal Belgian symbolist painter. In his works, Khnopff used a wide variety of media, including photographs. He also produced book illustrations for symbolist authors, decorative panels, polychromatic sculptures, and stage sets for opera and theater. His painting of the ceiling of the town hall at Saint-Gilles (1902) marks him as a forerunner of surrealism. Khnopff exhibited widely throughout Europe. He died in Brussels on 12 November 1921.
