Johannes Theodorus (Jan) Toorop, also: Jean Theodor Toorop (Poerworedjo (Dutch East Indies), 20 December 1858 – the Hague, 3 March 1928) was one of the most important artists from the period 1880-1910. Initially, he painted in an impressionist style, but through the pointillist technique he developed into symbolist painter.

He was also active as a portrait draughtsman and he designed ceramics, advertising posters and book covers. The Dutch Art Nouveau is often associated with his work. In the last twenty years of his life he was strongly inspired by Roman Catholicism.

Lithograph, signed and dated 1924. What is special is Toorop's handwritten text in the top left corner of the work.

The work comes from friends of the artist.
