biography of Robert Archibald Antonius Joan 'Rob' Graafland

De Maastrichtenaar Rob Graafland volgde een opleiding in de decoratieve kunsten, maar koos in 1895 voor het vrije kunstenaarschap. Drie jaar kreeg hij les aan de Rijksacademie in Amsterdam en keerde daarna als een gerijpt talent naar het Zuiden terug. Zijn stijl is te omschrijven als een sterk romantisch getint impressionisme waarin warme, levendige kleuren de overhand hebben en figuren worden opgenomen in een fantastisch spel van kleuren vol schittering en weelde. Geliefde thema's van de schilder waren de schoonheid van de vrouw, kinderen en de dans. Als oprichter van de Limburgse Kunstkring (1910) gold Graafland als pionier van de Limburgse schilderschool.
