Landscape painting by Daniel Wilhelm Bekking; signed lower left Dan Bekking; with a new wooden frame.

Daniel Wilhelm Bekking (born January 8, 1906 in Haarlem, died September 4, 1973 in Amsterdam) was a student at a young age at the Academy of Visual Arts and Technical Sciences in Rotterdam (1922-1927). After finishing his studies, he left for Paris, where he joined a group of young expressionists, including Dunoyer de Ségonzac, Othon Friesz, Derain and the Dutchman Conrad Kickert. After the outbreak of the Second World War, Dan Bekking settled in Amsterdam in 1940. He succeeded in gaining a foothold in the Netherlands in a short time: in addition to his own work, he trained many painters in his own studio and from 1945 to 1964 he was first secretary and then chairman of "The Independent" in the capital. He painted, watercoloured, drew (also pen and pastel) in fauvistic style portraits, landscapes, still lifes, interiors, bullfights, etc. His work shows the development from 'Fauve' to 'lyrical expressionist'. This was the direction that Dan Bekking had to go according to his character structure and he remained true to this direction until his death. He loved all forms of art: painting, sculpture, architecture, music, literature.
