Elbertus Donkerwolk

1810 - 1859

One of the most underrated figures in Dutch history may well be the hairdresser/photographer/entrepreneur Elbertus Donkerwolk.

Jos de Munk

1856 - 1923

The albumen prints shown here, I found on the street in a shoebox with old photos. They were put there to be taken away as trash. Through the owners of the pictures, I managed to trace their creator: Jos de Munk, tobacco seller from Rotterdam. These are most likely the only surviving photographs of this quiet man, who, in his spare time, appears to have been a passionate amateur naturalist and photographer.

Painting from the The Hague School-painter Théophile de Bock that I bought at marktplaats.nl for 375 euro. This painting appears to be a confirmation of my theory that he used photographs as visual examples for his work (see also Théophile de Bock on this website).
