Marie H Mackenzie (1878 - 1961) - Stilleven
Oil on canvas - Hand signed - Onbekend

Marie H. Mackenzie Rotterdam 1878 - 1961 Hilversum. Canvas dimensions 57.5 x 72.5 cm size frame 77.5 x 92.5 cm. Little is known about painter Marie Henri Mackenzie. During his life, he only exhibited later in life and after his death, only a few exhibits were dedicated to his work. This is surprising, because Mackenzie was one of Breitner’s pupils and his work was strongly influenced by that of his teacher. The similarity to Breitner’s work was so great that over time many "Mackenzies" were transformed into "Breitners" by counterfeiters. Marie Henry Mackenzie was born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on August 3, 1879. He died in his then hometown of Hilversum on 30 December 1961. Mackenzie lived and worked in Rotterdam, London, Baku (on the Caspian Sea) and back in Holland he stayed in Hilversum until his death. He was a student at the Academy of Arts in Rotterdam and later in Amsterdam, he was taught by Breitner.
