Local, gifted draughtsman Ed Valk (born in Schiedam in 1926) passed away on 11 June 2012.

He was particularly renowned for his sensitive but brutally honest drawings of the human body – young and old, his work being described as ‘niets verbloemend realisme’ in an exhibition of drawings in the Kunsthal Rotterdam entitled “Ed Valk tekent mensen” in 2002.
