Neel Doff was an author of Dutch origin living and working in Belgium and mainly writing in French. Third born to a family of nine, she accompanied her family on various moves (Amsterdam, Antwerp, Brussels) facing a progressively worsening poverty. Determined to fight her way from underneath the rag and tether class she started modeling for a large number of renowned Belgian painters (James Ensor, Félicien Rops) and sculptors (Charles Samuel, Paul de Vigne). In these artistic circles she met her future husbands. Enjoying her life as ‘Grande Dame’ she succesfully started writing books (Jours de Famine et de Détresse/Days of Hunger and Distress) and she published many short stories in various magazines and periodicals. She is one of the most important contributors to proletarian literature.
