The art of Jacob Bendien, 1890–1933

bendien07.jpg

Corner of a Canal (1919–20). This week’s post is another by Sander Bink about a Dutch artist whose work may be unfamiliar to those outside the Netherlands. Jacob Bendien was certainly new to me. My thanks again to Sander for the post. * * * Jacob Bendien, born in Amsterdam in 1890, was one of the […]

The art of Henricus Jansen, 1867–1921

henricus0.jpg

This week’s post is another by Sander Bink about a neglected artist of the Dutch fin de siècle. Once again, this is an artist whose work was new to me. The Mucha-like style of the later pictures (and the one above from the same series) are especially good. My thanks again to Sander for the […]

The art of Antoon van Welie, 1866–1956

vanwelie1.jpg

The Artists’ Studio (1906). This week’s post is another by Sander Bink about a neglected artist of the Dutch fin de siècle. There’s no need for me to add a great deal to Sander’s appraisal below other than to point out the evident debt that Antoon Van Welie seems to owe to the Pre-Raphaelites for […]

The art of Simon Moulijn, 1866–1948

moulijn5.jpg

Landscape, Drenthe (1896). Collection Hein Klaver. Sander Bink’s previous guest posts here concerned some of the forgotten artists of the Dutch fin de siècle, in particular the Beardsley-inspired work of René Gockinga. This new post from Sander is more Symbolist-oriented, with a look at the work of another Dutch artist. * * * Simon Moulijn […]

René Gockinga revisited

gockinga1.jpg

Presenting another guest post by Sander Bink concerning drawings by Dutch artists from the early decades of the 20th century, several of which show a distinct Beardsley influence. There’s also more than a little Harry Clarke in some of the details, especially the large Salomé picture below. Sander examines the provenance. * * * In […]

Gockinga’s Bacchanal and an unknown portrait of Fritz Klein

bacchanal.jpg

Bacchanal by René Gockinga. A guest post today by Sander Bink who generously translated his latest piece of research into the Dutch artists of the early 20th century who took the Beardsley style as a foundation for their own black-and-white delineations. As with this earlier post on the subject, many of these drawings are very […]

Wildeana 12

wilde.jpg

The Wilde Years (2000), a poster by Jonathan Barnbrook for an exhibition at the Barbican Centre, London. Continuing an occasional series. Recent (and not-so-recent) Wildean links. • Sander Bink writes that Beardsley-esque artist Carel de Nerée tot Babberich was in Paris in the summer of 1900, the summer of the Exposition Universelle which has been […]

More from the Decadent Dutch

netherlands3.jpg

Illustration by Otto Verhagen from Yolanda – Het Boek van Bloei (1931) by Nan Copijn. Would-be Decadents is perhaps a better label, the Decadent ship having set sail across an absinthe-tinted sea by the time these artists were putting pen to paper. Their drawings are another set of scarce images forwarded by Sander Bink who […]

Further echoes of Aubrey

verhagen.jpg

Dorian Gray (1924) by Otto Verhagen (1885–1951). If you need an idea of the colossal impact Aubrey Beardsley’s drawing had on the art world of the 1890s consider that the entirety of his career—from his first public exposure in The Studio in 1893 to his very untimely death in 1898—lasted a mere five years. Decades […]
