Large etching on laid paper

Technique: Etching
Period: 20th century
Condition: In good, restored condition
Title of artwork: Albert Geudens - Mechelen IJzerleen
Signature: Not signed

Albert Geudens (Mechelen 1869 – 1949 Schaarbeek) Mechelen, Gezicht op het IJzerenleen – 1914. Etching dimensions 54 x 41 cm. Printed in brown-black ink on chamois coloured laid paper. Annotation on the etching ‘Mechelen 1914’. The etching is loosely mounted on a sheet of paper. The etching has been placed in a passe partout of good quality. Its dimensions are 72 x 60 cm. Slight discolouration within the passe partout. A small restoration with tape (approx. 1 x 3 cm) in the top right corner, which does not stand out in view of the large format of the etching.
The painter and etcher Albert Geudens was born in Mechelen in 1869. Geudens studied at the ‘Academie Mechelen’ and the Academy of Antwerp. For years, Albert Geudens has lovingly captured all corners and edges of the city of Mechelen. He especially loved to paint beguinage and poetic scenes, in addition to old buildings and homes. He also was inspired by the interiors of spacious mansions. He accentuated the melancholy of the homes, neighbourhoods and residents through play of light, shade and soft shades. He also portrayed the same picturesque scenes in his etchings. His style can be described best as Neo-impressionism. His works are shown at the Museum in Antwerp and in the Hof van Busleyden in Mechelen. Albert Geudens worked at Acht-Zalighedenstraat 10 for a long time. It has a commemorative plaque on the facade. In 1949, Albert Geudens died in Schaarbeek. In 1955, the City Council of Mechelen honoured him by renaming the former ‘Grondwetstraat’ after him into the Albert Geudenstraat.
