biography of Rudolf de Bruyn Ouboter

Rudolf de Bruyn Ouboter was once described by his friend and colleague painter Kees Verwey as the 'prince of watercolorists'. In his younger years, the artist travels a lot: he stays in Munich, goes to Paris to study at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière (1924 -25) and is then in Florence for a while. He then returns to the Netherlands and completes his art education at the academy in The Hague (1926 -29). De Bruyn Ouboter worked impressionistic and had a preference for still lifes, but he also painted portraits, interiors and landscapes. From around 1931, De Bruyn Ouboter works almost exclusively in watercolor, a technique that he learned to perfection and which earned him the 'honorary title' of Verwey.
