Nicolas Liez ("View of Luxembourg from the Fetschenhof," 1870)


Luxembourg painter, sculptor and architect who is remembered in particular for his lithographs of scenes throughout the Grand Duchy and for his oil painting of the City of Luxembourg. He became Luxembourg's most talented graphic artist of the 19th century. He is also credited with bringing photography to Luxembourg.

Liez studied drawing with Jean-Baptiste Fresez at the Ecole de Dessin where he was awarded the silver medal in 1827. He continued his studies at Charleroi and Mons in Belgium, where he learnt the art of lithography.

His collection of lithographs published in his Voyage pittoresque à travers le Grand Duché de Luxembourg (1834) is considered to have been compiled when he was at the height of his artistic ability.

Liez died on 30 August 1892 in Dresden, aged 82.
