L'Enfant de Bruges 'Landscape by a mysterious child-artist

One of the biggest mysteries of the 19th century art history. Icon of re-incarnation and spirituality.

Frédéric Van de Kerckhove (1862-1873) died in 1873 less than 11 years old and left an oeuvre of no less than 600 drawings and paintings of landscapes. He was called "L'Enfant de Bruges" the name also given in 1441 to Jan Van Eyck...

His father Jean Van de Kerckhove (1822-1881) , deeply impacted by the loss of his talented son etched 100 of his landscapes only a few years after his death. A remarkable fact is the little boy always seen as a frozen figure in the landscapes.

This etching was made in 1876 and published in Paris by Levy in 1877.
It is in perfect condition and still on the large laid paper sheet.
The style is very sensitive and near to Daubigny and other Barbizon school artists.
