Made by Floris Verster after own design. Floris Hendrik Verster (Leiden, 1861-1927) was a Dutch painter and graphic artist. His father, a renowned painter of birds, was an administrator of the National Museum of Natural History in Leiden. Floris took drawing lessons from Gerardus Johannes Bos and later from George Hendrik Breitner. He continued his training at the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague, where he met and studied with Isaac Israëls, Willem de Zwart and Breitner again.
Condition: Very good, given age. Faint stains in the top margin (not affecting image). Left and right margins cropped close to the platemark. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully.
