Adriaenssens Fernand was born in Antwerp in 1859. He was a Belgian painter of landscapes. Lived and worked in Antwerp. Adriaenssens was an incredible landscape painter. He created unique atmosphere and described by different texture rendering.

He was a member of the artistic circle in Antwerp ‘Als Ick Kan’, the ‘Cercle artistique, littéraire et scientifique d’Anvers’ and the ‘Kunstverbond’.

Adrianssens exhibited quite successfully at the “Exposition Générale des Beaux-Arts” in Brussels in 1884 and also in Antwerp in the ‘Verlatzaal’ in 1885.

The artistic circle ‘Als Ick Kan’ was founded by Adriaenssens and others on October 25 in 1883 under the name ‘Union Artistique des Jeunes’. The aim of the founders was above all to create exhibition opportunities for its members, mostly young Antwerp artists, who had not yet entered the local official art circuit.

Painter died in his hometown in 1944.  Today, his paintings can be found in private and public collections worldwide, including in the Antwerp Museum.
