Antwerp circa 1665 – 1700 Antwerp.
Genre scene painter.

Son and pupil of Cornelis Mahu (Antwerp 1613 – 1689 Antwerp), who was a very versatile painter. The flower still life painter Gaspar Peeter Verbruggen I (1635 – 1681) had also been one of Cornelis’ pupils.

Both Cornelis and Victor’s genre scenes show the influence of the Dutch painter Adriaen van Ostade (Haarlem 1610 – 1685 Haarlem) and of the Flemish painter David Teniers II (Antwerp 1610 – 1690 Brussels).

Typical of Victor Mahu is his love for red and blue, plus the big noses that he gave to his figures.
