Painter of history, religious subjects, portraits, genre scenes, Balthasar Beschey is the second of four siblings, all painters. He is the most famous of his family, with his older brother Karel. Son of master tailor Jacques Beschey, he has as godfather the painter B. Van den Bossche and receives his artistic training from Pieter Strick, painter from Amsterdam established in Antwerp. He served as dean of the guild of Saint-Luc for the corporative year 1755/1756 and the same year, he was appointed professor-director of the academy of fine arts of Antwerp.
Talented portraitist, it is however in the big genre that he asserts himself the best. Eclectic painter with overflowing activity, sometimes turned to the Rubenian and Brueghelian tradition, sometimes open to the trends of the century, his painting appears as an attempt to renew the genre. His studio and the family shop where paintings were sold were the rendezvous of Antwerp's artistic world in the middle of the 18th century.
