Made by ‘Gerard C. Haverkamp’ after own design. Gerard C. Haverkamp (1872-1926) was a Dutch painter, draughtsman and etcher. Until his 23rd, he worked in an office and was artistically active only in his spare time. He was taught etching by Maurits van der Valk. Later, he spends time in Paris, living with his friend Pieter Dupont. Haverkamp is mainly known as an etcher, having left an oeuvre of ca. 300 etchings.
Condition: Very good, given age. Remains of attachment (to carrier or matting) on the rear. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully.
