Julien-Joseph Ducorron, a Belgian landscape painter, was born at Ath in 1770. At the age of thirty-two, he devoted himself to the art of painting under the direction of Ommeganck, and made marvellous progress as a landscape painter, obtaining several gold medals. He was afterwards director of the Academy at Ath, where he died in 1848. The Brussels Museum has by him a 'View in the neighbourhood of Irchonwelz, near Chièvres, Hainault,' and a 'Gale of Wind at Sunset.'
