Jef Joseph Marie Thomas Lambeaux (Antwerp, 1852-Brussels, 1908) is a Belgian sculptor, student of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. He is known for his bronze sculptures, marble bas-reliefs, and eccentric personality. Lambeaux’s works most often depict mythological or classical scenes featuring writhing or humorous figures and poses, emblematic of the artist’s sense of humor. Considered a Neo-Baroque artist, his choice of imagery and technique are indebted to painters like Paul Rubens, whose work featured both a painterly sense of movement and voluptuous forms. Lambeaux’s works can be seen in many squares and public parks around Belgium.
