Joseph Henri François Van Lerius (1823-1876) was a Belgian painter in the Romantic-Historical style. In 1838, he was already an apprentice draftsman at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. From 1839 to 1844, he was a student of Gustave Wappers. He took a study trip through Germany and Italy in 1852. Two years later, he was appointed to a position as a painting instructor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Aloïs Boudry, Gerard Portielje, Henri Van Dyck and Piet Verhaert were among his students.
Van Lerius painted mythological and biblical scenes as well as portraits and genre pictures. Much of his work is didactic in nature.
