Jan Toorop, the father of Charley Toorop, is one of the leading Dutch avant-garde painters of the period around the turn of the 20th century. He painted, etched, drew and made watercolours of landscapes, figures, nudes and portraits. Toorop’s choice to live in Katwijk was due to the immense pull the sea exerted on him. The quiet fishing village and the water inspired the painter to make some of his seminal works. In 1887 Toorop saw Georges Seurat’s work and immediately adopted his pointillism – then at the start of its artistic development – albeit in his own personal manner. In Domburg, Zeeland, where he spent the summers between1903 and 1922, he made full use of this technique.
