Saskia de Bodt, Erwin Joos
Women played a prominent role in Eugeen Van Mieghem’s art. At first this was his mother and later on mainly his wife Augustine Pautre. But most prominent of all in his oeuvre is the working women in the port of Antwerp. Like his great role model Jean-François Millet, Van Mieghem gave these simple working women an air of respect and dignity. Millet painted them working on the land, while Van Mieghem portrayed them going about their daily lives in the port of Antwerp. This book also looks at the influence of Rembrandt, Steinlen and Edvard Munch on Van Mieghem.
