The Belgian painter Frans van Severdonck lived and worked in Brussels and painted mainly genre pieces and landscapes with cows, sheep and poultry. He is, however, counted among the followers of the Belgian cattle painter Eugène Verboeckhoven, who came to live in Brussels in 1827 and achieved great successes at the Salon with his paintings with cattle. Throughout the 19th century, the painting of livestock was a very popular genre. In Belgium, among others Frans van Leemputten and Remy Maes were followers of Verboeckhoven, in the Netherlands Albertus Verhoesen.
