Harmen Meurs

Sitzender Halbakt

Oil on canvas 65.7 x 53.7 cm Framed. Signed and dated 'Harmen Meurs 32' in grey-green lower right. Two address stamps "HARMEN / MEURS / ALB. CUYPSTR. 25 / AMSTERDAM 2" (barely legible) verso on stretcher. - The margins partly minimally worn due to framing and some minimal losses of colour. Minor craqueleur in the upper margin and upper left area.

The depicted person could possibly be the Dutch artist Berthe Edersheim (1901-1993), with whom Harmen Meurs lived in the Albert Cuyp straat in Amsterdam at the time the painting originated.
