Observations 4… Jan Roëde

We have only one painting by Jan Roede in our collection and it always puts me on the wrong foot when i look at it.

Looking at it the first i see is the FACE : the Face with eyes, a nose and mouth and then i realise that this is part of the female figure of the couple depicted in the painting. There is always an aspect of fun in the paintings by Roede, but i can not look at the couple and bird in the painting , without seeing the face first. Pwerhaps that is the fun part of this painting.

the Couple by Jan Roede has some niece and early publications by Jan Roede available
