This is a vintage original hand colored etching entitled “Bruges”, by Belgian artist Roger Hebbelinck. It shows part of the medieval Burg Square, in the city of Bruges (in Flanders, Belgium). Its focus is on the square’s Old Civil Registry Building, which is a Renaissance-style three-gabled palace that was built in the 18th Century, on the site of a former palace that was built (in 1520) for the local council that managed the city and region. The etching also shows the west side of the Gothic-style Town Hall that is next to the registry building and that is known as Stadhuis, which was built between 1376 and 1421 and has a façade with highly detailed carved images of historic and biblical figures. The print is numbered 89/350 and is signed by the artist (in pencil) in the lower right corner. It has a certificate of authenticity attached to its back.

Roger Hebbelinck (1912-1987) was born in Brussels, Belgium. He studied (oil painting, landscape painting, watercolor, engraving, etching, drawing, the history of art of human and animal anatomy, designing of the human body, and the history of costumes), under the tutelage of some of the most famous artists and teachers of his day, including Alfred Bastien, Jean Delville, Guilluame Van Strydonck, Isidore van Mens, Julien Van Santen, and Paul Mathieu. Some of his studies were at the Academie des Beaux Arts, in Brussels. Although Hebbelinck was an oil painter, watercolorist, and engraver, he was best known for his colored etchings. He created many etchings of townscapes in Belgium. Some of his etchings were used as the illustrations for the book Les Villages Illusoires by the poet Emile Verhaeren. In the Mid-20th Century, Hebbelinck’s art work was regularly included in exhibitions in Belgium and France. By the 1950s, he was also a filmmaker, who won a prize at the Cannes (France) Film Festival for his documentary entitled La Naissance d’une Eau-forte (The Birth of an Etching). He also worked on a documentary for the Antwerp (Belgium) Film Festival that was about the construction of the structure called Atomium, which was originally built for the 1958 Brussels World Fair.

The framed etching is about 16 1/2 inches (wide) by 21 1/2 inches (high). The image is 6 inches (wide) by 12 inches (high).

This framed and matted artwork is in good vintage condition. The wooden frame is painted brown, with streaks of gold. It has a few nicks on it. The etching paper has slightly yellowed with age. It includes a small yellow area on the left side of tree branches that are at the top of the print and two small yellow spots on the right side of the tallest visible steeple of the town hall (see image #2). The spots are light and do not mar the beauty of this print.
