A Painter's House
After his death, the house of the painter Marten Melsen (1870-1947) was inhabited by his unmarried daughters and son. The sisters continued to live there until they were well into their eighties. They kept the house intact, as their father left it behind.The photos of these authentic interiors offer a view to a time that is not too far behind us, but yet has ended. Through her art painters education, and helped by a beautiful light, Karin Borghouts knows how to unveil this photogenic environment with a special and empathic sensitivity.
