Jan Dingemans

(1921 – 2001)

Jan Dingemans was born in 1921 in Breda, The Netherlands.

He presents two personalities in his painting; theone is exploratory, seeking new forms in familiar still-life and nude subject matter.

The other better-known, image is popular and manneristic.

In works of the latter order, Dingemans concentrates on only slightly varying compositions of African tribal figures, in which he compromises with contemporary idioms by providing an amorphous, rainbow coloured, abstract background, upon which he superimposes the linear, stylized groups of human subjects.

Jan Dingemans passed away in 2001.
