Jan Rozeboom (1945-1982)

Jan Rozeboom only lived to be 36, nevertheless this very talented artist left behind many beautiful works. In 2009 the Henriette Polak Museum in Zutphen exhibited an overview of his works. This exhibition was held simultaneously with an exhibition in the 'Gallery Agnes Raben in Vorden', entitled 'Every end a new beginning'. We found ourselves fascinated by the expressive gouache 'view at the port in Zutphen'-1963- and are very glad to have been able to add this painting to our collection as it is so overwhelmingly imaginative.

Jan Rozeboom was born as the eldest of twins. As the son of a baker it is not surprising when he enrols in the baking academy. However soon enough Jan's remarkable artistic talent sends him in a new direction. During a job at a packaging studio, Jan is encouraged to attend art school. From 1963-1968 he followed night classes at the Arnhem Art Academy. By day Jan was actively sketching and painting.

Jan Rozeboom had actually been developed as an artist already before he started his studies. At the young age of 8 he already received his first award and he was holding exhibitions throughout the 60's. Whilst at the academy he distinguishes himself through his unique approach. Something his teachers were not always happy about.
Jan had his studio in one of the towers of Zutphen's old city wall and the 360 degrees of light filtering into his studio has made for some fascinating Gouaches.

Jan Rozeboom died of a heart attack in 1982. At the time he was living in Greece with his partner Agnes Raben a gallery owner.
