biography of 'Adolf' Alexander Dillens

Adolf Dillens was a Belgian painter of portraits, history paintings and narrative genre scenes. He was crazy about Zeeland and worked there a lot. He traveled twice in Zeeland with Charles de Coster (the writer of Tijl Uilenspiegel). De Coster wrote and Dillens drew. The booklet 'Zeeland door de bril van' of 1873 is a nice, if somewhat flattering description of Beveland and Walcheren in particular. He had great success during his lifetime with his finely painted Zeeland scenes.
