Derk Wiggers was a notary's clerk before he chose to become an artist. In addition to an evening course at the Rotterdam academy, he then trained himself. Wiggers painted, watercoloured, drew and etched landscapes, especially panoramas of the major rivers, but also still lifes and farmyards. The artist lived and worked in the Gooi, on the Veluwe, in Berg en Dal near Nijmegen (1902-1917) and in The Hague. He also made foreign trips to Belgium, France, Spain and Italy. Wiggers was a member of Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam and Pulchri Studio in The Hague, and he regularly submitted his work to exhibitions from 1855 onwards.
