Joseph Gérard Adrien Van Luppen was a Belgian painter born in 1834 and died in 1891.
He studied at the Antwerp Art Academy in the Jacob Jacobs landscape painting class. He also took lessons from the landscape painter Frans Lamorinière and later from Théodore Rousseau in Paris. In 1880 he succeeded Jacobs as the titular of the landscape class at the Antwerp Academy. He painted realistic landscapes, usually with an indefinable melancholic atmosphere. He traveled in his own country looking for suitable subjects. He traveled several times the Ardennes in the company of painter André Plumot.
