Gustave won gold medals in Amsterdam (1862) and Paris (1863).
Beautiful women in fine silks, set in grand interiors make up a recipe of unrivalled success; De Jonghe presented throughout his career an array of such images. With each work his setting may have differed but his focus always remained true to the female type. The use of such a grand interior gave him the opportunity to exercise his observational and painterly skills with great flair.
Works include: “Notre Dame de Bon Secours” 1854, “Orphans and their Grandmother” 1862, “Piety” 1864, “Convalescent” 1869, “Birthday Congratulations”, “Lady before Mirror”, “Declaration of Love” 1884, “Giving Alms” 1866.
