biography of Jan Gerard Smits

Het werk van de Haagse schilder Gerard Smits behoort, zeker wat zijn vroege periode betreft, tot de romantische school. Als leerling van Salomon Verveer koos hij voor het schilderen van stads- en dorpsgezichten en van het strand en de duinen bij Scheveningen en Katwijk. Maar zijn werk beperkte zich niet tot de omgeving van zijn woonplaats en hij doorkruiste regelmatig het land op zoek naar schilderachtige steden en landschappen. Gezichten op Zaltbommel, Zwolle, Oudewater, Leeuwarden en stadsgezichten in Haarlem verhalen van een actief en reislustig kunstenaar. Hij gaf schilderlessen aan koningin Sophie. Musea: Haags Gemeentemuseum en het Museum Boymans-van Beuningen te Rotterdam.
