Hermanus Davinus (Herman) Heuff (Den Haag July 9 1875 – Heemstede July 1 1945)

Herman has become famous as painter (Hague School). From 1907 he mostly made etchings and drawings. Heuff took evening classes at the Akademie of The Hague and was a student of Floris Arntzenius. He painted cityscapes and ancient places in Zeeland, Zuid-Holland and Italy. Heuff was in contact with Theo van Hoytema and Willem de Zwart.

In the 1930s he became blind. In June 1933, there was a benefit exhibition and the Herman Heuff Fund was established. Befriended artists such as Marinus Heijnes presented works of art that were sold to the highest bidder. One of the buyers was Queen Wilhelmina. Heuff remained an artist after he went blind. In those years he often made ceramic plastics.

The work will be shipped carefully packed and - at the expense and risk of the buyer - registered by Postnl.
