WIERTZ Antoine (b. 1806, Dinant, d. 1865, Bruxelles) Nationality : Belgian

Belgian painter and sculptor. He was from very humble origins, but his talent for drawing was detected at an early age. He was sent to the Antwerp Academie, where he attended classes given by Willem Herreyns and Mathieu Ignace Van Bree. During a stay in Paris from 1829 to 1832 he came into contact with the Romantic painters, in particular Theodore Gericault, who fostered his admiration for Rubens. In 1832 he won the Belgian Prix de Rome and in 1834 left for Italy where the works of Raphael and, above all, Michelangelo made an overwhelming impression on him.
