Seghers, Corneille-Jean-Adrien

   The painter Corneille Seghers was born on 18 March 1814 in Antwerp, where he studied. In 1844 he moved to Brussels where he completed portraits and other paintings, most of which were ordered by buyers in Germany and Britain, but that also included works completed for wealthy city residents. His etchings, done in a style imitative of Rembrandt, enjoyed considerable success.
