Catalogue Note

Van den Berghe was based in Middelburg and his landscapes recall those of other artists resident in that city such as Adriaen Pietersz. van de Venne. Van den Berghe also took inspiration from Middelburg's still life painters, principal among them Ambrosius Bosschaert, and produced a small number of highly detailed flower paintings too. Laurens J. Bol was responsible for putting together Van den Berghe's œuvre of landscapes having associated him with the monogram 'CVB' that appeared on a small panel (see L.J. Bol, in Oud Holland, LXXI, 1956, pp. 183–95).
