Very beautiful 19th century Belgian oil painting by Louis Robbe (1806 - 1887). Portrait of cows at rest in a meadow. A superb example of the artist renown for his specialty in depicting animals in rural country settings. Surrounded by an opulent gilded frame with artist's name plate at the bottom. Louis Marie Dominique Romain Robbe (Kortrijk, 17 November 1806 - Brussels, 1887) was a painter, watercolourist and engraver of primarily animal scenes. In the main station Stationswijk-Noord in Kortrijk, the Louis Robbe Square is named after him. This square also houses a bust of the artist. Louis Robbe had a major influence in the art of painting in Belgium because he introduced realism in paintings of animals. From 1862 he also gave advice to the landscape painter Euphrosine Beernaert. By his actions, Euphrosine Beernaert began to work on location in the countryside to capture landscapes and animals in a realistic way. He also gave private lessons to the animal painter Joseph Stevens, changing his work from Romantic to a more Realistic style, the start of Belgian naturalism.
