Johan Dijkstra was a major Dutch Expressionist. He lived and worked in Groningen, where, along with artists like Jan Wiegers and Jan Altink, he was a member of De Ploeg painters' circle. His subject matter was chiefly the local landscape and portraits. He also made expressive sketches of everyday life on the streets and in the cafes. Influenced by German Expressionist Kirchner, Dijkstra's use of colour became increasingly bolder between 1923 and 1929 and his forms freer.
