Item Overview

Description

Verzameling van 4 landschapjes met bomen

Olie op paneel (2 x 9 op 8 cm en 2 x 6.5 x 10 cm), getekend met klein figuurtje, gemonteerd op paneel met grijs linnen

Fritz van de Kerkhove 'l'Enfant de Bruges', was de zoon van kunstschilder Jan Van de Kerkhove en is op de leeftijd van 9 jaar en 11 maanden overleden. Hij schilderde vanaf zijn zevende kleine landschappen die van een merkwaardige maturiteit getuigen met hun schetsmatigheid en monochrome bruinachtige tinten. In het kunsttijdschrift "La Fédération Artistique" en elders woedde een tijdlang een polemiek over het auteurschap van die werken: sommigen beweerden dat ze het werk waren van de vader. De hele heisa leidde tot een rechtszaak. Getuigen traden naar voor die verklaarden de kleine zelfstandig aan het werk te hebben gezien
