Very beautiful, original etching from 1941 by Jules De Bruycker, with a nice depiction of the lively Ghent city centre at the Korenmarkt around St. Niklaaskerk, seen from the terrace of Hotel Wilson.
De Wilson was located on the corner of the Korenmarkt and Veldstraat, and there De Bruycker often sat on the terrace to observe passers-by, hotel guests and terraces.
Jules De Bruycker (Ghent, 29 March 1870 - there, 5 September 1945), like James Ensor, is considered one of the most important Flemish etchings.
The old Ghent, the people of Ghent and especially the Sint-Niklaaskerk was his main source of inspiration. In 2008, this church organized an exhibition of his work.
Later, he worked for the Higher Institute for Fine Arts in Antwerp. For a while, he worked in the same studio as Charles-René Callewaert. During the First World War, he stayed in London and there he gained world fame with his war prints. Typical of his art are the portrayals of old folk types, while his remarkable cathedrals (Rouen, Amiens, Antwerp) caught the audiences attention. Also did folk scenes in Paris, Brussels and Antwerp; also drew the everyday virtuously, often poor life.
