"The name of Lugt has long been familiar in the art world as the author of the Marques de Collections (1921 and 1956), a two-volume dictionary of the marks used by many collector on the prints and drawings in their possession.

"Frits (Frederick) Johannes Lugt was born in Amsterdam on 4 May, 1884 and belonged to an old-established middle-class family, his earliest known ancestor being Pieter Jansz. (1575), who was a shipbuilder i Aalmeer ; the Jansz. changed their name to Lugt in 1750. Lugt's father was an engineer, who was director of the Public Works and then of the Electricity Board in Amsterdam ; his mother, Jeannette Verschuur, likewise came from sound bourgeois stock. She was the niece of the well known horse-painter Wonterus Verschuur (1812-1874) and made accomplished drawings.
"An early photograph of Lugt shows him a forceful and somewhat aggressive looking lad. By the age of eight he was aware of his bent and drew up a catalogue of his own museum  "Catalogus van Het Museum Lugtius Geopened als de Directeur thuis is" (Open when the director is at home), a document which tells us much about the man."
