Joseph Meganck, born July 9, 1807 in Aalst, where he died March 14, 1891, is a Belgian painter, known for his landscapes, genre scenes and religious subjects.

Biography :

Joseph Meganck was born on July 9, 1807 in Aalst. His parents are Pierre François Meganck, (son Jean-Baptiste Meganck and Josine Van Hoorebeke) and Jacqueline Smet (daughter of Norbert Smet and Anne Thérèse De Smedt), all originally from Aalst.
A student of the Aalst academy, then of Joseph Paelinck in Brussels and finally of the Parisian sculptor Pierre-Jean David d'Angers, Joseph Meganck practiced his art in Paris (1833) where he sold painted copies at the Louvre. He then went to Florence (1835) and returned to settle in Brussels in 1839. In 1846, he made a second trip to Italy. In the first part of his career, he is known for his genre scenes, landscapes and interiors.
Shortly before 1860, his work evolved towards religious painting. His works have since adorned several churches: the church of the convent of the Carmelite Fathers in Brussels, the Saint-Quentin church in Lennik-Saint-Quentin and the church of the beguinage in Aalst. In 1866, he produced a series of paintings intended for the Saints-Jean-et-Étienne-aux-Minimes church in Brussels (1st, 2nd and 3rd stations of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ) and received a favorable review from the press: “This painter, as tireless as he is intelligent, deserves the greatest praise for the truly religious character that he knows how to give to his works. »
From 1875, he no longer appears to produce paintings, although he is still cited as an “artist painter” in Brussels in 1878.
