My project is not only about my great-great-grandfather Henri de Buren, his life and travels, but it is also about what has happened since.
Henri was encouraged by his father to express himself artistically (as described in an earlier post), and he passed that same enthusiam down to his family. Natalie de Buren, Henri's granddaughter and my great-aunt was a shining example of that passion for art. She was a Swiss 20th century artist whose most important works were created between the 1920s and 1940s. She engaged in many artistic styles, but sculpture was her first love.
