Maurice Gustave Joseph Marie Hagemans (Liege, August 27, 1852 [1] – Ixelles, November 2, 1917) was an artist and watercolourist of the  Impressionism style. He belonged to the Colonie d’Anseremme, a Belgian painter’s school from the 19th century, and mainly painted portraits and landscapes as genre.
He was the son of rentier Gustave Hagemans, who at the age of 21 had inherited the fortune of his grandfather Josse Hagemans, co-founder of the Société Générale de Belgique and banker of both King William I and King Leopold I. Hagemans spent his childhood in Belgium, Italy and Switzerland, where his father did archaeological research. Around 1860 the family returned to Belgium and settled in the Hainaut village of Macquenoise. His father became a liberal member of parliament in 1866.

The young Hagemans completed secondary education and decided to become an artist. Around 1873 he began painting and helped his father in his archaeological investigations and in 1874 met Félicien Rops at an archaeological conference in Stockholm. He invited Hagemans to settle in Anseremme and become part of the group of painters and writers of the local painting school. He befriended Théodore Hannon, Eugène Verdyen, Périclès Pantazis and Théodore Baron.

Hagemans stayed in Anseremme for about five years, where he met his wife Marie Bricart. He then settled in Brussels where he became a member of the newly established Cercle des Aquarellistes et des Aquafortistes Belges where he had contacts with Edgar Baes, Lionel Baes, Euphrosine Beernaert, Jean Capeinick, Auguste Danse, Marie De Bièvre, Willy Finch, Amédée Lynen and Louis Titz. The following year he became a member of Les Hydrophiles, a tear off of the Cercle des Aquarellistes. During this period he often traveled to Scandinavia and Germany.

Hagemans moved to Antwerp for a while but settled in Ixelles in 1886. From there, he regularly went to the Meuse valley (including in Anseremme, Chooz and Freÿr) to paint there. In 1901 he bought the Villa des Pommiers in Freÿr where he set up a painter’s studio. He also regularly visited the Belgian coast to paint there.

Hagemans died at the age of 65 in his home town of Ixelles and is buried at the local cemetery. His son Paul Hagemans also became a painter.

Sigisbert Chrétien Bosch Reitz, known as Gijs (1860-1938) was a Dutch painter in the Impressionist and Symbolist styles. He was also associated with the Laren School.

He was born to a wealthy family and began his working career as a merchant. At the age of twenty-three, he decided to become an artist instead. After briefly attending the Quellinusschool, in Amsterdam, he went to Munich, where he took various drawing and painting courses, then finished his training at the Académie Julian in Paris, under the direction of William-Adolphe Bouguereau.

Upon his return, he settled in Katwijk aan Zee, but left after a short time to participate in the Exposition Universelle (1889), then went to England, where he lived in Runswick Bay and St. Ives before returning to Amsterdam.

He could not settle down, however, moving to Het Gooi in 1892, first in Eemnes, then Laren. Between each move, he travelled; to France, the United States and Japan, where he made a detailed study of Japanese art. This won him an international reputation and, from 1915 to 1927, he was a consultant on “Far Eastern Art” for the Metropolitan Museum in New York. He also managed a collection of Chinese porcelain at the Louvre.

He produced relatively few paintings because he worked slowly, paid great attention to detail and often strove hard to achieve a tapestry-like effect. Even his simplest, decorative-style works were the result of lengthy, concentrated effort. Richard Roland Holst  and Ferdinand Hart Nibbrig were good friends, but he generally remained aloof from the other artists at Laren and their social or professional affairs.

He died in an accident involving one of the steam-powered trolleys that ran between Laren and Amsterdam; known as the “Gooische Moordenaar” (The Killers of Gooi) due to the number of fatal accidents they caused.

San’en-zan Zōjō-ji (三縁山増上寺) is a Jōdo-shū Buddhist temple in Tokyo, Japan. It is the main temple of the Jōdo-shū (“Pure Land”) Chinzei sect of Buddhism in the Kantō region,.

Zōjō-ji is notable for its relationship with the Tokugawa clan, the rulers of Japan during the Edo periodimpre with six of the Tokugawa shoguns being buried in the Taitoku-in Mausoleum in the temple grounds. Also, the temple’s Sangadetsumon (main gate) is the oldest wooden building in Tokyo, dating from 1622. The original buildings, temples, mausoleums and the cathedral were destroyed by fire, natural disasters or air raids during World War II.

It is located in the Shiba neighborhood of Minato. The Shiba Park is built around the temple, with the Tokyo Tower standing beside it. In 2015 a Treasure Gallery was opened on the underground level of the Daiden (great hall), and it currently houses paintings of Kanō Kazunobu and a model of the Taitoku-in Mausoleum.
