Cornelis Everhardus ("Kees") Heynsius (Schoonhoven, 29 April 1890 – Amsterdam, 15 May 1981) was a Dutch painter who worked along the lines of Amsterdam Impressionism.
24x32 en 17x23 total dimensions 38x48 and 32x38.
Heynsius lived and worked in the Hague, Laren and Amsterdam, among other places. He obtained his training as an art painter at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten in The Hague. He painted, drew and watercoloured along the lines of the Amsterdam impressionism. His painting style was strongly influenced by the works of Paul Cézanne and Maurice de Vlaminck. His favourite subjects were landscapes, city- and townscapes, horses and still lifes with flowers. Especially later in his career he focused on the Southern French countryside of the Provence.
Heynsius was a member of the artists' society Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam and of the art societies "De Sphinx" and "Amicitiae" in Leiden, Pulchri Studio and the Hollandse Kunstenaarskring in The Hague. Heynsius was also the treasurer of the artists association De Onafhankelijken in Amsterdam.
In this last function, Heynsius attempted to mediate in the commotion that broke out in 1933 when the director of the Stedelijk Museum, David Röell, had two paintings of members of De Onafhankelijken removed from the spring exhibition with the agreement of the municipal authorities. This happened because they would be in conflict with good taste and morals. It concerned the canvases "De Namiddag" by Joop Moesman and "Selig sind die Armen" by Horst Strempel. Despite the efforts of treasurer Heynsius, the refusal continued and the society decided to close the exhibition.
Awards and exhibitions:
Heynsius was awarded the Golden Medal (1938) and the Arti Medal (1962). Heynsius participated in various (solo and group) exhibitions (including in The Hague, Laren, Amsterdam and St. Dié). In 1938, a retrospective about him was organized in Arti et Amicitiae. In 1950, a jubilee exhibition followed in the Kunstzaal Hamdorff in Laren. Heynsius' work is included in various private, corporate and government collections, including the collection of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and the Instituut Collectie Nederland).
