Henri Cassiers, born August 11, 1858 at Antwerp and died February 27, 1944 in Brussels was a Belgian illustrator and poster designer.


A trained architect, Henri Cassiers began painting at the Free Academy "The Turkey Leg" (on the Grand Place in Brussels) and at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp (Professor Henry Stacquet) and the academies of Brussels and Saint-Josse-ten-Node. Painter, watercolorist and gouachiste, lithographer and etcher, he is best known for its commercial posters, created for shipping companies and the seaside towns of the North Sea (Flanders and Zeeland) as that carried out in 1898 for Le Coq where he lived .

Cassiers has illustrated a number of books Jean d'Ardenne, including notes of a vagabond (1887) and several of its tour guides.

He married Césarine Popp, granddaughter Caroline Popp, the editor of the Journal of Bruges, with whom he had a daughter, Marguerite, who married the sculptor of Marnix Haveloose.
