Jean-Baptiste Kindermans was a pupil of the Namur Academy under Marinus. He mainly worked on the banks of the rivers Semois, Ourthe and Amblève and, from 1840 onwards, in Soignes Forest. He exhibited in Brussels from 1842 onwards. He travelled in Germany and Switzerland, then in England and Italy.
Kindermans sent his contribution to many exhibitions in Belgium and abroad: Antwerp, Brussels, Dublin, Ghent, Liège, Louvain, Paris, The Hague and London, to name but a few, and each time he won well-deserved recognition.
