Henri Berssenbrugge (1873-1959), recording of two fishermen in the port of Volendam, ca.1910-1920. Signed in the top right corner: H Berssenbrugge - handwritten title in the lower left: Volendam
Henri Berssenbrugge was a Dutch painter and photographer. The artist can be typified as a photographic all-rounder with a special interest in photographic processes.
From 1906-1916, he lived in Rotterdam. In 1916 he moved to The Hague and in 1919 he married Joanna Melis (1891-1989) from Tilburg. In 1921 the architect Jan Wils and painter Vilmos Huszár redecorated his photo studio in The Hague.
Berssenbrugge was mainly a portrait photographer. His oeuvre also had an extensive range of other subjects. Berssenbrugge was generally more interested in people and culture than in nature.
The print has yellowed, faded and has some water damage and traces of wear.
