Jan Garjeanne (1860-1930)

Johannes Josephus (Jan) Garjeanne, born in Delft, is somewhat forgotten. Pity, because he made beautiful artworks, which got a lot of attention and appreciation during his lifetime. Despite the fact that he for decades earns his money as a drawing teacher and therefore is not a full-time artist, his work is exhibited at prestigious places.

The Pieter Scheen artists encyclopedia reports that Garjeanne has studied at the Academy of Art in The Hague and at the Technical University of Delft. He opts for the education and starts at the age of 23 as a teacher in ‘the hand drawing’ in Vlissingen. Then he is 35 years (until 1924) drawing teacher in Venlo. That seems anything but an obstacle to his career as an artist. He is very productive, paints, watercolours and draws landscapes (for example around Volendam), sea- and river views (including the coasts in Zeeland) and town views (such as Delft and Venlo).

Garjeanne joins various artists' associations and exhibits throughout the Netherlands (among others in the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem) and also in Germany (for example in the Glass Palace in Munich in 1902). In 1891 his work is exhibited in Rotterdam and in 1890 and 1896 in Maastricht. It is also seen in the spring exhibitions of Arti et Amicitia in 1892, 1899 and 1903. The newspaper 'Het Vaderland' mentions in 1920 specifically the sale of a watercolour by him entitled 'Cabin on the moors' and three years later NRC mentions that his painting 'Martinus church' is included in the 'Album to the queen bound into eight parts, of which 217 are purpose-crafted images by Dutch artists. The last six years of his life Garjeanne lives en works in Hilversum. He then also exhibits with the members of the Association Laren-Blaricum, reports NRC in 1929.

The serene atmosphere of this snowy landscape makes you feel chilled to your bones. The setting winter sun, which flashes through the trees, reminiscent of the work of the painter Louis Apol. Unmistakably let this pastel -– in a handmade frame from the studio of Paul Gehring - see Garjeannes quality.
