Item description for Eugeen Van Mieghem: Antwerp-New York by Erwin Joos...
Growing up in the docklands of Antwerp in the late nineteenth century, Eugene Van Mieghem watched the comings and goings on the Red Star Line from his parents cafe across Montevideo Street. His early years coincided with the expansion of Antwerp Harbor and an increasing exodus to the New World. As a child and then a young adult, he spent as much time as he could sketching harbor views and portraits of the people around him, often in the midst of those historic departures. Antwerp-New York intermixes that work with historical material to create a moving profile of the massive movement of humanity that brought 3 million people past Van Mieghems doorstep and over the Atlantic to New York.
