biography of Martinus Jacobus Nefkens

Martinus Nefkens ging al op jonge leeftijd werken bij een schildersbedrijf. Zijn artistieke aspiraties lagen echter hoger en hij schreef zich in bij de Antwerpse Tekenacademie. Later werkte hij ook op het atelier van de beroemde Haagse Schoolschilder H.W. Mesdag. Na zijn vestiging in Amsterdam ging Nefkens’ carrière bergopwaarts: hij begon te verkopen en werd toegelaten tot de kunstenaarssociëteiten Arti et Amicitiae en Sint-Lucasgilde. Vanaf 1898 woonde Nefkens ’s zomers in Lunteren op de Veluwe. Daar schilderde hij impressionistische landschapstafelen in de trant van de Haagse School, waaronder veel Veluwse taferelen als schaapskooien en zandverstuivingen.
