Jaap Wagemaker is mainly known as a material painter and as such belongs to a small group of artists that includes Jean Dubuffet, Alberto Burri and Antoni Tàpies, who represented the movement internationally from the late fifties on. In the period prior to this, beginning in 1946, Wagemaker, influenced by Paul Klee’s work, began experimenting with a new, highly personal signature of imaginative symbols and lines which are obviously done in quite arbitrary fashion.
