    This work is property from the Estate of Karel Geirlandt (1915-1989) who was the director of Paleis voor Schone Kunsten in Brussels today BOZAR. In 1957 he was the founder of Vereniging voor Museum Hedendaagse Kunst in Ghent and therefore was the driving force behind this museum today, S.M.A.K. and the spiritual father of Jan Hoet.
