Gerard Hermans: 'Sint-Niklaaskerk Gent' - Pencil drawing - Belgium - 1940-1949
Rare original pencil drawing by the Belgian painter and draftsman Gerard Hermans (1901-?) of the Sint-Niklaaskerk in Ghent. Titled and signed by the master. Professionally framed behind glass.
Gerard Hermans is still a heavily underestimated artist despite his presence in our most important museums and the fact that the Print Room of Brussels owns a dozen of his drawings. In everything he paints or draws - be it a landscape, a vase of flowers, or a profile of a young girl - he always reveals a wonder of reflection, almost of endeared attention to everyday things, in which the creative tension is not lacking.
The Sint-Niklaaskerk is a church in the Belgian city of Ghent, on the Korenmarkt. The church building is dedicated to Nicolaas van Myra and is a good example of Scheldt Gothic. Unique is the crossing tower, more specifically a lantern tower, which illuminates the transept and, for the Low Countries, the flying buttresses of the main choir. The tower has a height of 76 meters.
