Portrait of the famous paintress Gisèle d'Ailly - Van Waterschoot - Van der Gracht
Netherlands, Groet, Sept. 2012

The daughter of the well known Dutch painter Harrie Kuijten organized at the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of Gisèle d'Ailly an exposition of paintings of Gisèle and her father. The above painting was done by Harrie Kuijten. Gisèle was able to visit the exposition, but she didn't recognize her own work anymore.
Gisèle d'Ailly was married with the former major of Amsterdam Arnold J. d'Ailly. She is also known for her heroic hiding of Jewish people in her house during WW II.

Great, senna! Thanks for all this interesting information.
One of my two brothers was a painter too. That's why I am interested. He was seven years older than me. His name was Guus Melai and you can find something of him in google.
