In June 2022, the FVV Collection acquired an impressive painting by Ernest Blanc-Garin, Jo Koster’s Brussels teacher. The oil painting and the matching special frame were in poor condition. In the meantime, they have been perfectly restored and the painting is, as it were, a virtual addition to the STUBBORN AND STURDY exhibition, which can be seen in the MTVP Museum Domburg until February 19, 2023.
Ernest Blanc-Garin, Au bas de l’escalier / At the Bottom of the Stairs, 1890, oil on canvas, 96 x 64 cm.
