Originally destined to become a house painter, Herman Kruyder developed into one of the most important representatives of expressionism in the Netherlands. He no longer painted visible reality but his inner life, and used subjects that he derived from the country life around him: the village and the people, animals and flowers. Even the portraits he painted are separate from reality and bear witness to a deep, sometimes almost tormented, inner life.
