FIVE WORKS FROM THE TONY HERBERT COLLECTION
LOTS 141-144

Tony Herbert (1902–1959) was one of the most important Belgians collectors of his time. After studying civil engineering at the University of Leuven, Tony Herbert settled in Kortrijk in 1928 as director of the spinning mill "Kortrijkse Katoenspinnerij". Since the late 1930s he focused on creating a collection of art, which only after World War II would be fully developed.

Tony Herbert concentrated first and foremost on the work of Gustave De Smet, and by 1946 he had assembled a collection of more than sixty paintings and drawings by this artist. Tony Herbert also acquired a number of works through Galerie Apollo in Brussels, among others by Edgard Tytgat, Jean Brusselmans and Rik Wouters. After World War II, Tony Herbert focused on the further expansion of the ensembles around the previous artists and Constant Permeke. For Herbert all these artists undoubtedly represented the force of the art.

The tributes that the Herbert couple organised in their Sporenhof home in honour of these artists from the collection are legendary.
