What’s new ?
A very sad news.
On December 25th 2017, we received a message, via our Internet site, from a man requesting information how to buy our book (the original version at that time). He presented himself as William GERDTS, Professor Emeritus of Art History, City University of New York. He added: “I am involved in the study of the American artists who studied and worked in Ecouen”. That was a very modest way to present himself.
Since then, we have been in touch with him many times, via Emails or over the phone. Professor GERDTS was enjoyable to talk to, always trying to help us, answering questions we asked concerning American painters who were part of the Ecouen School history.
Professor GERDTS died on April 14th 2020 of Covid-19.
We are missing him already and his memory will stay forever in our hearts.
