Tinus Marthinus Johannes de Jongh (South Africa/Netherlands, 1885-1942) oil on canvas landscape painting depicting a Dutch Colonial style cottage surrounded by trees with dappled sunlight. Signed "Tinus de Jongh" lower right. Whitewashed and giltwood molded frame with tan linen matte. Sight – 15 1/4" H x 21 1/4" W. Framed – 28" H x 34" W. Early/mid 20th century. Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Self-taught, de Jongh began his career as a decorator in Holland and then pursued painting full-time, focusing on painting street scenes, interiors and landscapes in Amsterdam. He achieved some note when the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam purchased one of his early pictures. He immigrated to South Africa in 1921, practicing a sober style within the Dutch tradition. The light and landscape of South Africa soon caused him to abandon his muted palette in favour of more saturated colours. Cape landscapes with gabled farmhouses were favored subjects. During his lifetime his works were purchased by the Rijksmuseum which subsequently built up a collection of his urban scenes. Tinus was the father of Gabriel de Jongh, who in his turn became a well known painter of landscapes in South Africa. CONDITION: Overall good condition with some yellowing to varnish on painting. Areas of spotting, surface of matte. Minor losses to frame.
