Article

Dutch painter, draughtsman, calligrapher and printmaker of German origin. He was the son of Gerhard Backhusz. (Backhusen) of Emden, and he trained as a clerk in his native town. Shortly before 1650 he joined the Bartolotti trading house in Amsterdam, where his fine handwriting attracted attention. He practised calligraphy throughout his life (examples in Amsterdam, Rijksmus.; Dresden, Kupferstichkab.; London, BM). During his early years in Amsterdam he also displayed his skilled use of the pen in drawings, mainly marine scenes, done in black ink on prepared canvas, panel or parchment. He probably derived this technique and subject-matter from Willem van de Velde (ii) the elder’s pen drawings of the 1650s. Bakhuizen continued to produce pen drawings until the 1660s, some depicting recognizable ships and existing views, such as his ...

Fiorella Sricchia Santoro

Italian painter, sculptor, draughtsman, printmaker and illuminator. He was one of the protagonists, perhaps even the most precocious, of Tuscan Mannerism, which he practised with a strong sense of his Sienese artistic background but at the same time with an awareness of contemporary developments in Florence and Rome.

Roger Bezombes studied at the Paris École des Beaux-Arts from 1934 and won a grant enabling him to travel in Africa in 1936. Also in 1936 he took the Prix de Rome and according to some sources, a National prize in 1939. He also had guidance from Maurice Denis and used to consult the works of Gauguin, Van Gogh and Matisse. Later he was one of the winners of the Hallmark Prize in 1949 and according to some, he gained the Grand Prix National des Arts in 1946; according to others he won the Great International Painting Prize in 1956. In 1955 he was appointed official painter to the Navy. He travelled in Belgium, Germany, Italy, Greece, Crete, Palestine, North Africa and the USA. Under the Moroccan sun he convinced himself that, 'the least little Arab weaver knows more about colours than the learned Chevreul with his chemistry and striped wheels', an opinion not shared by the Impressionists, neither Seurat nor Delaunay, nor, as his letters to Theo make clear, by Van Gogh, by whom, however, Bezombes claimed to be influenced.
