Willem Borgh knew as a boy he wanted to be an artist and started at the age of 16  his study at the Royal Academy of Art in Rotterdam, the same institute where a.o.  Kees van Dongen en Hendrik Chabot etc. followed their art training. After the Academy Willem got private lessons from such well-known artists as Marius Richters and Herman Bieling. Originally Willem Borgh wanted to be a sculptor.  His sculptures are made of wood, ceramics, stone and bronze. Before the sculptures he often made drawings. Having these drawings he decided to also make paintings. After the army, he combined being an artist with a job in a laundry company. Willem Borgh had many commissions from Official Bodies and Cultural Institutions for his paintings and sculptures, including a wall painting in the Football Stadium of Feyenoord in Rotterdam. He had many shows in Holland. Most probably this work is made in Liguria as he travelled there.
