Artist of the moment…… Johan Jongkind

Johan Jongkind was born in Lattrop,  Holland in the year 1819. Jongkind was a painter of landscapes. His style was Impressionist.

For his artistic education Jongkind attended the Academy of Art located in the Hague, Netherlands. He then relocated to Paris to learn from private lessons.

Many of Jongkind’s landscapes were of France and Holland. He would paint quick watercolour sketches on site. Once back in his studio the artist would use these to create his larger oil works.

In this clip a great selection of works by Johan Jongkind:

If you enjoy landscape works with low horizon lines make sure and check out artist Keith Jacobshagen. Jacobshagen has great design skills and he can take a small size canvas or paper and make it seem vast and endless.

Johan Jongkind passed away in 1891.

Jongkind is included in the Musee D’Orsay located in Paris, France.
