Laurent specialised in still life paintings and in particular as an architectural interior artist with the canvas incorporated over a chimney or as an over-door. His pupil was the Louvain based painter Francois Xavier Joseph Jaquin 1756-1826, and, like his pupil produced beautifully observed depictions of birds. His works in the illusionist style, with birds against plain or wooden effect walls where the natural light and shade effects, combined with very fine painting of the plumage, makes them appear real, continued the tradition of two of the masters of this form of painting in the Netherlands in the 17th century: Cornelis Biltius and Cornelis Norbertus Gysbrechts.
