DE BRUYCKER Jules (1870-1945)
L'échauguette - 1935
Etching on Japanese paper.
Signed, dated, and titled in pencil.
Etching dimensions: 34 x 24 cm - frame: 55 x 37.5 cm.
Beautiful copy on Japanese paper.
The frame shows some light damage. The etching is in good condition. There is a white dot visible, but it must have been there always. The framing probably dates back to the 1950s and it has never been acquired as the old paper tape on the reverse side is still intact.
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.
Grégoire Le Roy published in 1933 "L'oeuvre gravé de Jules De Bruycker, avec une notice critique et biographique."
