biography of Nicolaas 'Nic' Jonk

Nic Jonk is een bekend naoorlogs beeldhouwer, schilder en graficus. Hij liet zich inspireren door grote Franse kunstenaars als Aristide Maillol, Antoine Bourdelle en Auguste Renoir. De vrouw, dieren en de natuur, soms verbeeld binnen mythologische of religieuze thema’s, waren zijn grote inspiratiebronnen: zo maakte hij onder andere beelden van naakten, goden, godinnen, (wal)vissen, dolfijnen, zwanen en paarden. Jonks stijl is herkenbaar: beelden in brons, met gladgepolijste gracieuze, vaak voluptueuze rondingen en uitreikende gebaren. Zijn schilderijen en grafiek tonen diezelfde uitbundigheid en expressiviteit. Jonk maakte ook sieraden, keramiek en objecten in glas, staal of perspex. In 1965 vestigde hij zijn eigen galerie/museum en beeldentuin.
