Jos Hendrickx (Borgerhout, March 13, 1906 – Antwerp, November 16, 1971) was a Belgian draftsman, watercolorist, woodcarver, graphic artist and glass artist. He was Christianly inspired, socially committed and left behind a remarkable oeuvre. He received several national and international awards during his life, including honorary membership of the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno di Firenze. He started his training as a free student at the Antwerp Academy and then at the Higher Institute for Fine Arts with Isidore Opsomer for figure drawing and Eduard Pellens for engraving. His work can be found in the Belgian national museums (including the Museums of Fine Arts of Antwerp and Brussels) and in various international art institutions (Paris, Frankfurt, Ohio, Pretoria...). They could regularly be admired at exhibitions at home and abroad (Chicago, Warsaw, Rome, Berlin, Florence, Venice, Paris, Leipzig). Hendrickx is usually counted among the animists, but as an artist he was not guided by fashions and movements but mainly worked according to his own principles and insights.
