Charles Donker
Born: Utrecht
Education: Royal academy of art and design
Charles Donker is a Dutch graphic artist who has acquired fame with his etchings of nature. From 1956 to 1961, he was a pupil at the royal academy of art and design in Den Bosch. The next two years, he was taught at the department of monumental art, where he learned how to design mosaics. From 1969 onwards, he only did drawings and etchings. In 1962, Donker became a member of the in 1960 founded graphic company ‘De Luis’. At that time, De Luis has a studio in Utrecht which was open to various artists. The purpose of the group was to promote the free graphic arts. They tried to achieve this by both increase the production as well as the dissemination (through a system of subscribers and patrons) of graphic art.

Charles Donker gained national fame as a graphic artist due to an exhibition in the Central Museum in Utrecht in the 1970s and the publication of the book ‘Dagboek Rhijnhauwen’. Donkers work often has nature as topic, the place where he loved to work. From his diary it became evident that he could spend hours sitting in silence surrounded by nature. The things he saw were used for his etchings. Donker mostly worked in issues between the ten - fifty etchings. The plates that were used to make the prints were rarely dated. The print often comes with a date.

From the 1970s on, he belonged to one of the rare modern-day Dutch graphic artists who can almost continuously live off his work. This is mostly the result of him participating in many sales exhibitions. Since 2000, Donker is not attending exhibitions as much. Charles Donker’s work is, among others, on display in the national museum in Amsterdam, the central museum in Utrecht, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, the Rembrandthuis and the collection of Frits Lugt at the Fondation Custodia in Paris.

    We understand that you are frustrated that the painting was not delivered, but we cannot control the Courier Company. We would appreciate your reaction when you see the money is on your bankaccount.
