The richly illustrated book on painter Frans Mortelmans
Mortelmans Foundation moves to Wullebeekstraat
Aartselaar, Berchem - The Mortelmans Foundation is an organisation that keeps the life and works of painter Frans Mortelmans up to date. This organisation recently moved from Berchem to Aartselaar and is now ready with a comprehensive book of this Flemish artist.
Frans Mortelmans grew up in the parish of St Paul in Antwerp, where his parents gave him the opportunity to study art. He was to become a renowned painter of still lifes and especially flowers in the late nineteenth century.
One of the works of Frans Mortelmans.
His impressionist work was and is described as highly virtuosic. The man also painted some portraits and interiors with figures but his work with floral arrangements numerically fetch the upper hand. The purchase of a work in 1903 by the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp gave him official recognition.
His descendants are doing all they can to keep his life and work in focus. After three years of preparation, they are ready with a new book. The book will (appropriately) be offered for the first time at the Fleuramour event at the Landcommanderij of Alden Biesen in Bilzen from Friday 23 to Monday 26 September, from 10am to 6pm each time. "It has more than 400 pages with accompanying commentary in three languages," says Dirk Schiltz, chairman of the foundation. "In addition to a very extensive series of colour photographs, it includes a corrected and reworked œuvre catalogue of the works by Frans that we have been able to locate to date."
Frans Mortelmans mainly painted flowers
The book is offered in version with and without an additional illustrated cover. It is available through the Mortelmans Foundation and through Standard Boekhandel shops.
