This website shows my private collection of Dutch impressionist paintings of the past century (including today). My collection focuses on Amsterdam city views. The reason for focusing on the city of Amsterdam is quite simple. Amsterdam is a very beautiful, vivid and historical city. And I do live there with great joy. Many famous artists have made Amsterdam townscapes including Rembrandt, van Gogh, Monet, Breitner and Liebermann.
In addition to Amsterdam cityscapes I also collect other themes including landscapes, harbour views, beach views and still lifes.
My mission is to create a beautiful, balanced collection of (impressionist) paintings with a focus on the city of Amsterdam. In doing so, I am inspired by painters of the Laren school of art which existed some 100 years ago and whose painters gathered in the famous Hotel Hamdorff in the city of Laren. Think of Cornelis Vreedenburgh, Co Breman, William Singer, Piet Mondriaan, Louise Loeber, David Schulman, Ferdinand Hart-Nibbrig etcetera.
Criteria for my own collection are: impressionist, created in the past 100 years, colourful, reflecting craftsmanship, esthetically attractive and preferably linked to the Laren school of art.
Famous Dutch art author Mrs Carole Denninger, gave the following feedback:
L’Impression makes us part of an exquisite collection of old and contemporary cityscapes, which clearly reflects the love for painting. The paintings are not only chosen because of the historical location, but also because of the great degree of artistry with which the painter has laid down the place. Without exception, they are top-quality works.
