Charles Verbrugghe lived in Paris, but returned regularly to paint in Bruges. He has dedicated this joyful Neo-Impressionist garden view to his friend Jef Vande Fackere in 1920. I was lucky to find the pastel portrait by Van de Fackere of Verbrugghe: I give it freely on top of this magnificent painting.
Our garden view was published on the cover of the French art magazine “L’Estampille-L’Objet d’Art” in the summer of 1995.
