About the Artist

Jan Altink was a member of the Groningen painters’ circle De Ploeg.
However, he distinguished himself from fellow members by much preferring to work outdoors. He is best known for his landscapes and local village scenes, along with city views and the occasional portrait and still life. At first his palette was limited to mainly grey and green tones, but after 1924 came his Expressionist period when he recorded reality in strong, vivid colours and simplified forms in wax paint.
