DE FEURE IN HIS STUDIO

OCTAVE UZANNE IN STUDIO INTERNATIONAL 1898 ‘Georges de Feure was born in Paris in 1868, his father being a Dutchman and his mother a Belgian. Thus from his parents he inherited his love of the tranquil, melancholy land where the sea waves moan and the forests rustle in the breeze. From them, too, springs his thoughtful vision, his sad dreaminess, and his intimate comprehension of the symbols dear to the Northern spirit. When quite young, de Feure was taken to the Netherlands, where his father, a rich and prosperous architect, brought him up amidst every luxury. At fourteen the lad, longing for independence, was placed in a business house at Utrecht, but he did not stay there long. Meanwhile his father, after a series of disastrous speculations, had suddenly found himself ruined. Thus, when scarcely sixteen, De Feure’s easy, comfortable existence was changed in a moment into one of trouble and anxiety, such as befell some of the heroes of Dickens and Lesage. He had all sorts of ups-and-downs. After being clerk to a firm of forwarding agents at Dordrecht, assistant to a bookseller at La Haye, and working at a hatter’s in Rotterdam, he ultimately became a sort of wardrobe-keeper’s assistant and “general utility“ man in an Amsterdam theatre, where for fifteen florins a week the poor lad had to post the bills and

He has already made his name there.
