SEEING POEN THE WIJS PAINTING... IT WAS ART TOO!
CLOSE WITH THE ARTIST POEN
For five years, as a producer of informative programs, I followed the Dutch painter of Realism, Jacob Christiaan de Wijs with my photo and video camera. Better known by art collectors and in gallery circles as Poen de Wijs. He was born in 1948 in Nijmegen, but lived most of his life in the Bezuidenhoutkwartier in The Hague, where he visited the nearby Royal Academy of Art.
I have met many artists: Carel Willink, Anton Heyboer, Corstiaan de Vries, Anton Pieck, and so on. Master painter Poen de Wijs fits seamlessly into the list of special artists of Realism, such as Dick Ket, Pyke Koch, Raoul Hynckes, Jan Toorop, Carel Willink. They each add something new to this captivating art form.
FINE ART PRINT, OR GICLÉE:
HIGH-QUALITY PRINT ON ANY SIZE AND MATERIAL
Shortly before his death in 2014, Poen de Wijs asked me to “spread his art all over the world” in the form of high-quality reproductions. Such as (UV-resistant) giclées and interior products. But also on other “carriers”, such as aluminium (Dibond) and plexiglass. In limited editions and with certificate (print number and seal). No mass production! Read more about giclées.
