Anton Fortuin

Anton Fortuin was a son of florist Willem Fortuin and Maria Ruijs. He was an apprentice in a stonemason (1892) and was trained in the evenings with Carl Geverding at the Drawing School for Crafts in Amsterdam (1893–98). He continued his education at the Academy of Visual Arts in Ghent (1898–1900). In 1901, he established himself as an independent furniture maker and sculptor in Amsterdam. Fortuin made, among other things, reliefs, small sculptures in stone and wood and utensils. He designed and decorated interiors for several mail ships.
