biography of Alphonsus Josephus 'Alfons' van Dijck

Born and raised in Antwerp, Alfons van Dijck spent a large part of his artistic life in and around Veere. That is why he is called the 'Veerse Vlaming'. The painter was trained in Antwerp by Isidoor Opsomer (1878-1967). With the outbreak of the First World War he emigrated to Holland. He settled there in 1919, after a stay in The Hague, Amsterdam and Edam, in the Zeeland town of Veere. His oeuvre consists of (Zeeland) landscapes, cityscapes, fishermen's portraits and still lifes in a naturalistic style. From 1920 to 1935 he was influenced by Neo-Impressionism, which had been introduced in Zeeland by Jan Tooro. In 2003 the Museum 'The Scottish Houses' in Veere organized an exhibition of the artist's work.
