Beautiful colourful and clear portrait of a girl in traditional costume from the Dutch fishermen town of Volendam.
Work is signed with J Smits.
Joop Smits (1938 – 2014) graduated in 1961 at the Academie voor Industriële Vormgeving in Eindhoven. In 1992, he moved to Ireland to work on his paintings in his own studio. He builds a second studio on Mallorca in 2002. In 2006, he leaves Ireland for good to live on Mallorca.
The topics of Joop Smits’ paintings are often mystical and elusive. Often there is a change of expression, sign language and technique. For that reason it is difficult to bring his oil paintings under one denominator. To typify it, one could use the term ‘Magic Realism’ or ‘Fantastic Realism’.
This work will be extremely carefully packed and shipped worldwide!
