I remember that Jean Ernst had a great skill to create a perspective
He used to make small silhouettes cut in copper leaves to occupy the background of his dioramas

A nice diorama.
The figures match the background very well.

Yes Eric, J. Ernst made a lot of dioramas for Jean Deconinck. Jean is still alive but very old now (a little more than 90's).




Willie, I didn't make the background, the painter made it. He painted the back ground on a wooden support.


The painter, J. Ernst, was very well known for the quality of his back ground.

It reminds me old time long ago when Jean Ernst was making a lot of nice dioramas for a belgian collector about the Burgundian time
I think his name was Deconink but I am not sure
It was in the beginning of the 80thies when the SBF was at its best and when there was a nice little museum in Jette
