Van Mieghem Eugène

Eugène Van Mieghem was a Belgian artist born in Antwerp in 1875 and also died there in 1930. He was a painter, draftsman, pastelist, watercolorist and graphic artist. From 1891 he was educated at the Academy in Antwerp. He was knocked out there in 1896 by Eug. Sibert, who had also sent Van Gogh away ten years earlier. He lived in the harbor quarter, in the coffee house In den Hert. The discovery of Steinlen's work has had a lasting influence on Van Mieghem's oeuvre. He was a draftsman with a keen sense of observation for the lives of the marginal people of the harbor area. His entire oeuvre bears witness to social connection with the small people; without false sentimentality, but with deep human respect. He himself also lived a poor life. Thousands of drawings piled up in his drawers. He made melancholy character drawings of toiling dockers, men of the Southern type, rooting harbor women, light berths, folk children, sailors, skippers and harbor views. He worked in his paintings with a sober palette and with sombre and deep tonalities. From the press: “V.M. does not obscure. He catches the harbor in its grayness. Yet he gives his folk figures a certain dignity, such as Millet gave to the peasants. His work does not express sentimental pity, but honest solidarity.” He was a member of the Circles De Scalden and Eenigen. He exhibited in 1901 with la Libre Esthétique in Brussels, in 1905 at the first Salon of Kunst van Heden in Antwerp. He was born in 1920, through the intercession of his friend Is. Opsomer, teacher at the Academy in Antwerp and continued to teach there until his death. In 1998 the E. Van Mieghem Museum was inaugurated on the Linker-0ever in Antwerp. Work by V.M. can be found in the Museums in Antwerp, Brussels and Ixelles. Eugène Van Mieghem is mentioned in BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (piron)
