Abstract Frans Hendrik Mertens (1796-1867) was librarian of the Antwerp City Library and one of the key players in the early years of the Flemish movement. Through his active membership of cultural societies as well as through informal connections, he supported the young artists (writers, painters) who helped shape the idea of a glorious Flemish past. As a librarian he remained nonpartisan, which brought him a lot of credit from all parties.
