Seamstresses in Fine Art September 16, 2017 The Lacemaker Charles Boom (1858-1939) Belgian See a short video of his works HERE Related 7 responses to “Seamstresses in Fine Art” I am always amazed at the artists ability to make their paintings look like a photograph. Incredible detail, thanks for sharing this artist with us! I agree – some looked like photos! Thank you for sharing such a great artist. I’d not heard of him before. The depth of expression shon in the eyes is magnificent I love the diversity in his paintings, from almost sketching to such perfect portraiture. Actually, I like the sketchier ones best. Portraits seldom tell the true story so much. My Aunt, Henske, who lives in the Netherlands close to the town of Utrecht, makes lace! I was totally amazed at the process of it and I thought cross-stitching could be complicated at times – I don’t know how she knew which spindle to move next………. How lucky for you! Do you have any of her lace? The process does look intimidating! Would you ever think of trying it or getting lessons? This is so lovely… would enjoy it on my wall !! Thanks for a hit again, Lori..
