biography of Adriana Johanna Wilhelmina 'Jeanne' Bieruma Oosting

The painter Jeanne Bieruma Oosting spent her youth on large family estates in Lochem and Friesland. This relatively isolated existence, in close contact with the nature, had a major influence on the themes of her work: the animals in her garden, landscapes and village views from the areas where she lived. She also painted portraits. After a stay in Paris from 1929 onwards, the artist made a name for herself as an innovative graphic designer. She mastered a large number of techniques and experimented freely with them. Her subjects, in which man dominates with his fears, dreams and visions, were very unusual for a woman in her time.
