Haes, Carlos De

Carlos de Haes was born in Brussels to a family of bankers. The family moved to Spain, settling in Málaga in 1835 when he was six years old. De Haes first studied art with the Neoclassical portrait painter Luis de la Cruz y Ríos, and in 1850, de Haes decided to continue his art training with the great Flemish landscape painter Joseph Quinaux, who taught de Haes until 1855. Quinaux taught him to paint outdoors, and this defined his future artistic direction.

In the 1850s, Carlos de Haes was involved in the rise of the Realist School of landscape painting in Spain. In 1857 he became the first professor of landscape painting at the Academy, and the first teacher in all of Spain to teach painting outdoors en plein air from nature.

Besides his teachings, he continued with his paintings, and in 1858, Carlos de Haes received the first medal at the National Exhibition. He was elected an Academic at the Royal Academy in 1860. He again showed in 1876 at the National Exhibition with his landscape oil painting La Canal de Mancorbo en Los Picos de Europa. It did not win any prize, but because of its importance as a realistic Spanish landscape painting, it was bought by the Spanish government to be hung in the collection of the Museo del Prado in Madrid. Carlos de Haes was cited along with Aureliano de Beruete, one of his students, as one of the grand masters of Spanish landscape painting.
