Alfred Stevens began his formal training in painting in his native town of Brussels, at the Academie Royale des Beaux-Arts, under Francois-Joseph Navez (1787-1869). In 1844, he pursued his studies in Paris, at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, drawing and painting under the guidance of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867). With this rigorous training in drawing and composition, the young Stevens won the jury’s medals at his first major public showings in Paris - the Salon of 1853 and the Exposition Universelle, two years later. However, it was only following the later exhibition that Stevens turned away from the more traditional subjects of history painting in order to concentrate on portraiture, for which he was to become famous.
