To her great pleasure, our curator Francisca van Vloten was able to acquire a Zeeland work by the Belgian artist Emile Claus (1849-1924) for the Museum collection at a German auction on May 15, 2023. Between about 1873 and 1912, Claus regularly resided in Domburg. It is a painting of a vast meadow landscape on Walcheren in the vicinity of Domburg.
