Frans Mortelmans 1865-1936


Frans Mortelmans 1865-1936

The Mortelmans Foundation is extremely proud to present this new 'Frans Mortelmans' art book.
Gradually, the complete inventory of his works is taking shape.
After the publication of the catalogue in 2002, but especially after the second publication in 2009 of the book 'Virtuoso Flower Painter', we were contacted from all over the world to check and add many still unknown paintings to our inventory list. Today we count about 900 paintings.
The composition was again taken care of by our members and specialists, in consultation with professionals concerning graphic design, copywriting, translations, printing, publication and distribution.
This new and voluminous art book is presented in four-colour print. It is trilingual 'Dutch-French-English', contains a fully adapted and revised oeuvre catalogue, and is illustrated with approx. 800 revised and improved quality photographs.
The book will be presented for the first time during the event 'Fleuramour' that takes place from Friday 23 till Monday 26 September 2022 (10.00-18.00) in the castle of the Grand Commandery of Alden Biesen in Bilzen.
It is available in two versions, one with an extra illustrated cover at 84.90 € (limited edition) and one without a cover at 69.90 € (to be increased with shipping costs if necessary)
2022/09/20 - The book has just left the printing house and weighs about 3.4 kg.
From the end of September 2022 onwards this new art book is available via the Mortelmans Foundation and later also via a number of shops of Standaard boekhandel.
