Charles Hermans - circa 1880
847 x 624 • 516 KB
Attributed to Charles Hermans. This attribution is not sure, but very plausible: signed, comes from a belgian collection, an inscription refers to the belgian city of Namur (so the artist is probably from Belgium), and the drawing can be dated at the end of 19th century; by the way the number inscribed lower right (6 79) could mean June 1879, but this is just an hypothesis.

Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
