Antique Framed Oil Painting on Canvas by Christoffel Hendrik Dijkman (1879-1954) was commissioned to immortalize an impressive chateau along the waterside, replete with Flemish architecture and a design that included courtyards and ante-structures that provided a home for a very affluent and/or influential family.
Christoffel Hendrik Dijkman (Sint-Maartensdijk, December 29, 1879 - Borgharen, December 11, 1954) was a Dutch painter. and was largely self-taught. Between 1900 and 1925 he painted many cityscapes of The Hague, Rotterdam, Delft and Rijswijk, but also of Amsterdam, Haarlem and Woerden. Furthermore, a number of harbor views from Dordrecht, Rotterdam and Scheveningen are known from that period.
The fact that Dijkman was already fascinated by nature at the time is evident from many paintings of landscapes in the Green Heart. Dijkman signed with C. Dijkman and C.H. Dijkman and once with Dijkman. When he settled in Vucht in the Maas valley in 1925 to dedicate himself entirely to painting, he started using his second name; from that moment on he let himself be called 'Henk'. Most of the works from the period 1925-1954 are signed with Henk Dijkman and H. Dijkman and occasionally again Dijkman.
His expressive designs (preliminary studies) are mentioned by the art historian Ans van Berkum in a sea of ​​pieces directed by the environment.
Robert van Lit of The Hague Historical Museum calls Dijkman 'a small master': "The paintings that our museum has of him are literally and figuratively made with verve." Historians in both The Hague and Maastricht and Belgian Limburg are grateful to Dijkman for so many historic, and also less picturesque, places on canvas, panel and paper.
