Fairytale-like and delicate, that is how the magnificent oeuvre of Jan Mankes (1889-1920) can be described. Mankes inspired later masters from our collection and was himself influenced by the art traditions of previous generations. As a boy, he walked every Sunday from his parental home in Delft to The Hague to see Holbein, Vermeer and Flemish primitives in the Mauritshuis, the story goes.
Later he lived in the Frisian countryside, until his marriage to Annie Zernike, the first female minister in the Netherlands. He spent the last years of his short life in the Gelderse Eerbeek, where he produced an important part of his soft, soAber portraits, restrained still lifes and animal pieces. After his death, Mankes's person became a hermit of genius with an aversion to loudness.
In the museum webshop we have numerous museum gifts with reproductions of Jan Mankes. Such as posters, sketchbooks, pens, bookmarks, magnets and much more. The most famous works are row of trees, large owl on screen and the white rooster, all on display at Museum More in Gorssel, the Netherlands
