Over Jan Cremer

”Centipede- like” Cremer paints and immerses himself in graphic techniques. After many wanderings, he produced a series of canvases / paintings in the 1950s, also known as “Peinture Barbarism”. After writing the bestseller “Me, Jan Cremer” in the 1960s, Cremer leaves off to New York. Here he starts painting and screen printing his “Tulip series”. Dutch landscapes, together with Italian and southern French vistas, will form a common thread in the artist’s oeuvre.

In recent years, Cremer has returned to the abstract expressionist period from the fifties with his seascapes.
