Description / Expertise

Brangwyn’s large scale drawings, such as the present work, mainly employing brush with thick black ink are amongst his most dramatic and arresting works. Brangwyn had been born in Bruges, where a museum (the Arentshuis) is to this day dedicated to showing his work. Long after settling across the channel, the dramatic Gothic architecture and city life of Northern European towns and cities such as Bruges, Antwerp and Furnes remained a strong influence in his work.
