Charles Van den Eycken (1859-1923, Belgian)

Charles Van den Eycken is known for painting still-life interior scenes with cats and dogs.  He studied under the animal artist J. Stevens and from 1881 became a regular exhibitor at the Salon in Brussels and other Salons in the region.  He even painted a portrait of Queen Marie Henriette of Belgium.  Even so, it is for his delightful paintings of dogs and cats, so typical of the 19th century, for which he is best remembered.  His paintings are much like those of Henriette Ronner-Knip and Julius Adam in that they portray kittens and cats in the same types of mischievous situations and in a similar style.
