Settled in Brussels in 1840 and became an official at the Ministry of Finance. Preferred scenes with cattle, sheep and goats. Realistic design. Later he also focused on the landscape. He exerted a great influence on the younger generation of animal painters. From the press: 'The landscape was for L.R. not a 'decor', but a space in which his figures moved. He preferred cows, which he depicted anatomically correct and unadorned. The characters depicted, usually cowkeepers, shepherds and shepherdesses, on the other hand, play a subordinate role in the landscape.' Work in the Museums in Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, Bruges, Kortrijk, Liège, Tournai. Mentioned in the Lexicon of West Flemish visual artists IV, BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (Piron)
