A painter, and etcher* of landscapes, figures, cityscapes and animals and book illustrator, Josef Nuyttens was a native of Belgium, where he studied at the Antwerp Royal Academy.  He continued his art education in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux Arts*.  By 1905, he was exhibiting his work in Belgium.  "By the end of the First World War (1918), he had emerged as one of Belgium's leading artists and received the bronze medal from the Queen of Belgium as well as the Chevalier of the Order of Leoopold II." (artoftheprint)

In the mid 1920s, Nuyttens moved to the United States, first living in New York and then settling in Chicago, where he studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago*.

In 1911 and 1912, before immigrating to America, he illustrated four books by Oz book author L. Frank Baum:  The Flying Girl and its sequel, The Flying Girl and Her Chum, Phoebe Daring, and Annabel, second edition.  Nuyttens also illustrated Kenny by Leona Dalrymple.

His mediums were oil, watercolor, pastel and etching.  Many of his works were destroyed in Chicago in a house fire in which he lost his life in 1960.
