VELDE, Henry van de
(b. 1863, Antwerpen, d. 1957, Zürich)

Bathing Huts at Blankenberge

Oil on canvas, 71 x 100 cm

In 1887 Van de Velde first saw Seurat's Grande Jatte, which influenced his own style, with the result that in 1889 he exhibited Neo-Impressionist paintings such as Bathing Huts at Blankenberge and Woman at the Window, which are among his best known works.
