biography of Wijtze Gerrit Carel 'Wim' Schuhmacher

Wim Schuhmacher was trained as a house painter, and served as assistant to interior decorating artist C.A. Lion Cachet in Amsterdam from 1911 to 1913. After that time, he learned to master free painting through evening classes and self-study. According to Schuhmacher himself, in his early years he was most influenced by Breitner, Toorop and Van Gogh. As a young painter in Amsterdam, however, he had plenty of opportunity to become acquainted with the luminism of Leo Gestel and Jan Sluijters which, just like the work of the neo-impressionists, the Parisian cubists and German expressionists, was on display at the exhibitions run in the capital by the groups De Moderne Kunstkring and De Onafhankelijken.
