Hello all!
I am trying to locate any information in English on this artist. Recently an aquaitance came across a piece of art by this artist. It is extremely old. It is a drawing or sketch of Magere Brug,Or I believe it to be. Someone had told this person that during the war one of this artists art works was lost.

I will be getting a photo of this piece and will try and post it.Thanks so much
