A small collection of loose sketches, sketchbooks and oil paintings.
Cor de Gavere's early life had the aura of a tragic fairy tale. She was born in Java, where her parents were Dutch missionaries;
by the time she was six years old, illness had claimed the lives of her brother and both parents. An aunt and uncle in north
Holland took in the orphaned girl, and sent her sister off to boarding school.
