BIOGRAPHY OF THE PAINTER:
Born in 1903 in Brugges died in 1993
Henri Steen was not strictly speaking a painter in Montmartre.
However, he frequented the Butte a lot, especially the estaminets at one time; he regularly came to his father Charles Verbrugghe's house on Rue Philippe de Girard.
His style and subjects were very similar to those of his father, who taught him painting.
Coming to his home in Stains every weekend, Charles retouch his son's works to the point where it became difficult to distinguish them.
It is necessary to do this justice to Henry that he was never tempted to pass his works on to those of his father.
That's why he took the pseudonym Steen, after a famous 17th-century Flemish painter.
When Charles died in 1975, Steen's works differed from those of his father, who no longer touched them.
On the other hand, another painter signed Henri Verbrugghe in such a way that their two signatures were confused, which is why a number of these paintings are being sold for sale by Charles Verbrugghe.
Nevertheless, they are distinguished by a great difference in quality and touches.
