Toorop in Katwijk

Jan Toorop (1858–1928) is one of the most important Dutch painters from the period 1880-1910. Initially he worked in the Impressionist style, eventually developing through Pointillism into a Symbolist painter. Toorop was also active as a portrait painter and a designer of ceramics, commercial posters and book covers. Dutch Art Nouveau is often associated with his work. From 1890 to 1892 and 1899 to 1904, Jan Toorop lived in Katwijk aan Zee. His daughter Charley Toorop, later a famous artist herself, was born here in 1891. Two trees will be on show in Katwijks Museum until spring 2019.
