Simon Steenmeijer Received his training at Minerva and was a member of the Groninger Ploeg from the very beginning; he was one of the signatories of the invitation of the founding meeting on June 5, 1918. He played an active role in the board and in the organization of the exhibition. He had a photo shop with his brother Jan Cornelis, who was also a member of De Ploeg for a short time. Probably partly due to his busy work from 1925, the oeuvre of this artist has remained modest in size; it mainly includes watercolours and chalk drawings of landscapes in expressionist style. After 1945 he traveled several times with Wiegers to France, Switzerland and Italy where they both drew and painted.
