Size 130 x 100 cm ( framed 170 x 140 cm ) Lita Cabellut (1961) was born in Barcelona, into a Sinti family and lived on the streets until the age of 13 when she was adopted by a prominent family. She was introduced to her masters in the Prado: Velazquez, Goya and Frans Hals and became deeply affected by art. She attended drawing and painting lessons and had her first exhibition at the age of 17 in Madrid. She then came to the Netherlands to further develop her skills at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and to work with the special light in the Netherlands.

Henri Verbuecken
Henri Verbuecken


Watercolour signed and dated by Henri Verbuecken 1919 HENRI VERBUECKEN was born on October 17 th. 1848 in a well-to-do Antwerp family. After completing his studies as a painter and interior decorator at the Royal Academies of Fine and Applied Arts in both Antwerp and Paris, he undertook several study-trips including a voyage to Egypt in 1872. Upon his return to Antwerp, or shortly thereafter, he founded his proper studio as "Peintre-Decorateur", which in no time expanded to one of the largest, most renowned "Ateliers" around the city, explaining of course the ever growing number of highly skilled artisans being employed. Largely influenced by earlier mid 19th Century English Neo-Gothicism, Verbuecken set out to become the leading 'Interior Decorator' of his generation, wasting no time increasing his fine reputation from a local to a national and eventually an international one. In fact, between 1880 and 1890 he had been awarded several major prizes and gold medals for his furniture originals at the World Fairs of Antwerp, Amsterdam, Brussels and London. The extreme sense for detail and refinement in his to perfection driven creations, earned him the respect and admiration of his peers and many wealthy 'High-Society' families alike, the last of whom commissioned and entrusted him with the restructuring and decoration of their valued interiors. The quality of the materials chosen, their uniqueness and handcrafted ap p e al, cre ated a consistant demand by even the most conservat ive companies and o rga n i z ations towa rds the end of the 19th Century, hereby cle a r ly dem o n s t rat i ng Verbuecken's historical importance as a pioneer-craftsman and businessman. Being a brother of the Antwerp Freemason Society, he became selectively appointed to decorate the entire interior of the local Freemason Temple in Egyptian style, between 1874 and 1875 and again through the years 1895 to 1898. (Demolished in 1982) It was the Royal Society of Zoology (or better known as the Antwerp Zoo) however, which gave him the opportunity to develop some of his most remarkable creations to date in collaboration with the young and ambitious architect, Emile Van Averbeke. (1876-1946) To some Verbuecken's contribution to the Antwerp Zoo will always be remembered for the numerous mosaics he completed, the unique stained-glass windows he produced and foremost the restauration and redecoration of the 'Egyptian Temple', for which he received wide international acclaim. Of course, Verbuecken's commitments to the Antwerp Zoo didn't stop him from accepting several privately commissioned orders from Antwerp's wealthy Upper Class. As of 1877 he designed and built his own house on the Rubensstraat, overlooking Antwerp's "Central Park". The building's facade (demolished since WW II) was done in a neo-gothic manner, whereas the interiors hosted a variety of exotic styles. In 1896 he was responsible for the astounding interiors of the family Bracht's mansion, (later Restaurant La Rade and now the "Eugene Van Mieghem" museum) on the Van Dijckkaai no.8, barely twenty meters from Antwerp's posh harbourfront quayside.
