Figurative depictions and portraits, in the style of the American portraitist John Singer Sargent, determined the work of the Belgian painter Aimé Stevens. From 1895 to 1902 he studied at the Art Academy in Brussels with Joseph Stallaert and Joseph Quinaux. After graduating, he worked there until 1949 as a teacher. For his artistic activities, Stevens has received numerous awards and prizes, such as the Grand Prix of the painting competition "Conours Triennal de Peinture" in Brussels 1900.
