Emile Baes was born in Brussels in 1879.
At the age of 16 he became a student of J. Stallaert at the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. In 1900 he also studied under Cabanel and Bonnat in Paris. Baes became a painter of nudes, portraits, landscapes, still lifes and historical subjects. He was also an illustrator and writer.
He exhibited his work at the Salon de Bruxelles during 1903 and 1904 and at the Salon d’Automne in Paris from 1928 to 1933; at the Salon des Artistes Francais between 1929 and 1938 and at the Salon des Tuileries from 1933 to 1939.
After WW1 he went to settle in Paris where his sumptuous subjects had a great following.
Baes’s canvases like this one are articulated with patches of pure colour.
He died in Paris in 1954.
