MASTER ARTWORKS FROM THE NETHERLANDS
All paintings are in original and perfect condition, framed (except print). JULIEN LANDA (1947 -) is painting in the great tradition of the Dutch Masters and his still lifes combine antique and contemporary objects with an elegant classicism. He had and still has numerous exhibitions throughout the world, including shows in New York, Philadelphia, Miami, Tokyo, Amsterdam, London, Hamburg etc. He also makes city views, landscapes and sporadically a golf still life, like the fine art print we offer of Seve Ballesteros who is owner of the original painting. Landa, personally, handed over the painting to Ballesteros who, at that time, signed 20 copies of the fine art print. As proof of authenticity photos of both events will be supplied. For complete biographies see our website WILLEM BOON (1902-1986)studied at the Royal Academy of Art in Rotterdam, was an allround artist in a way he painted landscapes, still lifes, portraits, both realistic and impressionistic, abstracts, and made sculptures.

He called it modern-figurative. After the War he was teacher in modelling and painting. In the late sixties he moved to Italy for 3 years where he made very colourful paintings and beautiful sculptures in bronze, ceramic and wood. The images of his paintings can often be found again in his sculptures and vice versa. Later he spent most of his active life in Gouda. He liked to paint nude women and several of his works were inspired by Modigliani. He exhibited in many countries, incl. Artexpo, New York. Our art collection also includes a number of Borgh's.
