About the artwork
About the ArtistJan Voerman jr. was born in Hattem, The Netherlands, on January 23, 1890. He went down in history as a Dutch litographer.

Thijsse, he worked on a series of drawings for Verkade, displayed in 25 albums. Because of the beginning of World War II, this collaboration came to an end. In 1923 Jan Voerman had a marriage to Hetty Mansholt, after which he moved to Overveen. It was in this city when he became an established litographer. In 1932 he moved to Blaricum.
