Johannes Eerdmans work has been exhibited regularly at Beckstones Art Gallery for over twenty years and he has become extremely popular among our customers. Johannes Eerdmans was born on October 15, 1950 in Sneek and grew up in Bolsward (Friesland) in the Netherlands. From childhood he was interested in drawing small-size sailing ships and later received training at the Leeuwardian Academy of Art, the “Vredeman de Vries Stichting”. Johannes Eerdmans soon discovered that working in groups and making abstract art was not suited to his artistic talents. From that time onwards he chose to go in his own direction, drawing and painting to his own vision, gradually developing a style that is strongly reminiscent of the Romantic School. Johannes Eerdmans enjoys painting still-life but he also paints some Dutch townscapes, ships, and summer and winter landscapes. The longer Johannes Eerdmans paints, the higher his esteem for the old Dutch masters becomes. Without professing to have a particular preference, he presents distinct evidence of his inspiration in his works. Connoisseurs praise the extraordinary atmosphere his paintings exude, and examples of Johannes Eerdmans work are in galleries and collections in many parts of the world.
