Seerey Lester, John (1946) View 1 Item
Born in Manchester, England in 1946, John Seerey-Lester took the first step toward his adult career in 1955 when he won first prize in an art competition sponsored by The Daily Express, one of England's largest newspapers.

With such a background, it should come as no surprise that both Frederick and his half-sister Ida grew up to be artists, a future prophesied by his father who once told him, "Freddy, you will never make a businessman. You will do much better as an artist." That encouragement led to...

Weijand, Jaap (1886-1960) View 2 Items
Though he was born and pursued most of his career in Amsterdam, Jaap Weijand studied art in Paris beginning in 1908. There he absorbed the innovations in modernist painting and brought them back to Amsterdam where he soon became a committee member of the Moderne Kunstkring, an organization of Dutch modernist artists. Moving to the artist's village of Bergen, Noord-Holland, he began painting in a style influenced by the Bergense School, applying color fields, as he does in Orchard in Autumn, most frequently...
