The painter Salomon Garf painted, drew, etched and made linoleum cuts. Figure and interior pieces, portraits, still lifes and some landscapes.

He lived and worked as a painter in Amsterdam and Antwerp in 1905. In 1903 he settled in Blaricum, where his typical Laren genre scenes, figures and portraits sold well at the Laren Art Trade.

He painted still lifes for his own pleasure. They clearly show great artistic delight, as are beautiful, mundane portrait and figure pieces.

Garf was a pupil of the Quellinus School, the National School of Arts and Crafts and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam where he was taught by A. Allebé, C.L. Dake, N. van der Waay (1890 – 1903) and G. Sturm

He won the Willink van Collen prize in 1914. He was a member of “Arti et Amicitiae” and “St. Lucas” in Amsterdam. Salomon Garf taught E. van Gelder, D. Isselman, C.A.C.A.M. Baron van Lamsweerde, G. Smith, A.J.C. Wulfse and M.C. Zelander.
