Arend Hendriks - St. Jacobskerk in Den Haag

After the extensive renovation of the medieval ‘Grote Kerk’ or ‘St. Jacobskerk’, Arend Hendriks meticulously recorded this church in an etching in a very spectacular fashion. Only a super artist like Hendriks would be able to do this.
Arend Hendriks was born in Amsterdam on October 31, 1901 and died on October 28, 1951 in Wassenaar.
He learned to become a teacher at the Rijkskweekschool in Haarlem, which included the drawing teacher education for lower education levels. After that, he studied to become competent as a higher education drawing teacher at the ‘Haagse Teekeninstituut’. But he above all, he was a self-taught artist. Though for a while, he was a pupil of Marinus Arend van Heuven.
Hendriks worked as an artist in both Amsterdam and Haarlem, The Hague, Wassenaar and Voorburg.
Arend Hendriks was graphic artist, painter, drawer, etcher, engraver, lithographer and a writer. He mainly worked with oil paint. His subjects were very diverse: still lifes, forest and polder landscapes, cityscapes, interiors, figure scenes, figure studies, (self) portraits. Hendriks worked very precisely if not realistic.
Hendriks was a member of the Pulchri Studio in The Hague, the “Vereeniging tot Bevordering der Grafische Kunsten ‘De Grafische’”, and of Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam.
