Overview

Antwerp, New York: Eugeen Van Mieghem (1875-1930) and the Emigrants of the Red Star Line by Eugeen Van Mieghem

Growing up in the docklands of Antwerp in the late nineteenth century, Eugene Van Mieghem watched the comings and goings on the Red Star Line from his parents' café across Montevideo Street. His early years coincided with the expansion of Antwerp Harbor and an increasing exodus to the New World. As a child and then a young adult, he spent as much time as he could sketching harbor views and portraits of the people around him, often in the midst of those historic departures. Antwerp-New York intermixes that work with historical material to create a moving profile of the massive movement of humanity that brought 3 million people past Van Mieghem's doorstep and over the Atlantic to New York.
