People who studied Werkman, Siep van den Berg and Dijkstra,….probably have encountered the name of Jannes de Vries who was in the Fifties a respected artist in the northern part of the Netherlands. Member of “de PLOEG” his works resemble those of Dijkstra and were influenced by DIE BRUCKE. Later he became less abstract and painted more and more realistically, but always using a colorful painters palette.

He used his colors like in the days of the Fauves exagerating reality and creating a colorful world which was in reality much less colorful.
