STEVENS Alfred (b. 1823, Bruxelles, d. 1906, Paris) Nationality : Belgian

English sculptor, designer, and painter, the son of a decorator. He was encouraged by a clergyman who lent him things to copy, so that at 15 he was a competent portraitist in the Reynolds tradition. His patron collected 60 and approached Landseer, but Landseer's premium for an apprenticeship was 500, so in 1833 the boy was put on a ship for Naples. No arrangements had been made for him and no further funds were provided; he knew no Italian, got involved in political intrigues, and fell among thieves.
