Fine art painter of portraits, women, genrescenes, interiors, marines in a clear and precise style with bright colors. Received instruction in the art of Navez, Paelinck and Van Eycken at the academy of Brussel and begon to go perfect in Paris with Roqueplan and Ingres. Was the brother of Joseph Stevens who also painted. Was good friends with Manet, Morisot, Baudelaire, Bazille, Puvis de Chavannes in Paris. Debuted with conventional genrescenes from a socially oriented sentiment that what Charles De Groux was present. In 1885 he switched to a less anecdotal conception of the genre and chose his models from the upper classes. Was also one of the first fans of Japonaiseries.Sarah Bernhardt was one of his pupils. Work in museum Brussel, Antwerpen, Paris, Boston, Elsene, Doornik, Luik, Amsterdam.
