About Artist: Crail Moansburg was the only offspring of a marriage, commencing in wartime, between an American father and a german mother. They were both working just across the German border, on American army soil. After difficult school-years, Moansburg attended the Royal Art Academy in Arnhem when he was 18 years old. His drawings were magnificent, but that wasn’t enough, and his concentration issues forced him to leave the academy. Without a diploma, learned from bitter experience, he became manager of a nightclub in the infamous Spijkerkwartier, Arnhem. He found meaning and peace in his work. He also took up his paintbrush again. Behind the scenes, he captured scenes of performances and performers in the nightclub. He used the posters announcing shows in the backgrounds of his work. The characters on canvas had a nostalgic value for the artist. He gave away lots of his work to his dancer friends and clients frequenting the establishment, as he viewed his artistic efforts merely as a hobby. Work from this era is therefore hard to retrace.
