Joos Vincent de Vos (1829–1875) was a Belgian artist who specialized in paintings of animals. He studied at the Kortrijk Academy under religious artist Philip De White, and Edward Woutermaetens, also a painter of animals. At the academy, his early works won medals for composition in 1848, antique images in 1849, anatomy in 1851, and the gold medal for perspective in 1852.

In 1870 he spent time in Roman Campagna, Italy, but eventually he settled down in his home town of Kortrijk, where he set up his studio, which most described a small zoo. He kept dogs, wolves, foxes, monkeys and even a camel. Small sized painting of oil on panel was the majority of his works.

"Joos Vincent de Vos (1829 - 1875) was born in Kortrijk, Belgium in 1829 to father Jan Eugene Vos, a miller, and mother Marie Anne Verhaeghe.

Belgian painter of animals, Joos Vincent de Vos has painted especially dogs and monkeys in the Realist style. He was trained at the academy of Kortrijk and pupil of the animal painter Eduard Woutermaertens. In his studio he dared monkeys, wolves, foxes, dogs even a camel accommodating. Late in his works he gives his dogs back in opulent salons and posh interiors. Yet he is at his best in the image of street wandering, proletarian dogs.
