Adèle Kindt [16 Dezembro 1804–1884]

Belgian painter, the leading female painter of the 1820s to 1840s. Marie-Adélaïde Kindt was trained in drawing by engraver Antoine Cardon. She studied painting under François-Joseph Navez and was encouraged by Jacques-Louis David. Although trained as a neoclassicist, Kindt’s work was informed by Romanticism. Her early works included many historical scenes. Her Épisode des journées de septembre 1830, portraying a scene from the Belgian Revolution of 1830, is considered her masterpiece and is on display in the Brussels city museum on the Grand Place.
