biography of Hermanus Antonius Josephus Maria 'Herman' Moerkerk

Herman Moerkerk lived and worked most of his life in 's-Hertogenbosch. In addition to being an artist, he was also active in cultural life as an art critic, director, and he designed costumes for revues and allegorical parades. As a draftsman, he gained fame primarily for his caricatures. In 1928 Moerkerk moved to Haarlem for a job as a publisher / illustrator with the Catholic Illustration. During that period he continued to provide artistic support for Bossche events and also gained national fame with his work. Moerkerk painted excellent portraits, still lifes, Brabant interiors and village and city views and was a witty illustrator. He also drew caricatures of Bossche citizens and Brabant folk types.
