WIJNAND VAN NIEUWENKAMP (Dutch / 1874-1950)

The Dutch graphic artist Wijnand Otto Jan van Nieuwenkamp was born in Amsterdam. His first name is sometimes incorrectly spelled Wynand. Wijnand van Nieuwenkamp is celebrated particularly for his scenes in Bali and Java. Having first travelled to Indonesia in 1898, W.O.J. van Nieuwenkamp made repeated visits to the area, including long trips to Bali in 1904, 1906-7, 1917-19, 1935 and 1937. Travelling on foot, on horseback, and by bike, Wijnand van Nieuwenkamp made an important record of Balinese art in drawings and prints, and books such as Bali en Lombok (1906-1910); he also gathered together a huge collection of Balinese art and artefact. Although nicknamed "the Wanderer", Wijnand Otto Jan van Nieuwenkamp settled in the 1920s in the Villa Nieuwenkamp in Fiesole, just outside Florence.
