A descendant of the “Dutch Frenchman” J.B. Jongkind (1819-1891), Heytman (born 1954) HEYTMAN Willem (1954 - alive) showed talent early, filling the ages in his exercise books with drawing after drawing between lessons. Soon after leaving school, Heytman started experimenting with pastels, watercolours and oil paint, choosing to concentrate on the last medium in particular. The artist had his first exhibition in 1976 in Middelburg, Zeeland, the Dutch province that has remained his home. Apart from the lessons he took from Dutch seascape painter J.W. Heijting, Heytman is very much a self-taught painter. Innovating and improving continuously on style, use of colour and composition, and boldly tackling almost any theme. His canvases depict a whole rare of subjects, from summer seascapes and beach scenes to winterty cityscapes. Heytman also paints subjects many other painters shrink from, such as cars or trams, devotedly representing his perception of them in oils, Having painted in this way for over 20 years, Heytman has irrefutably carved a niche for himself in the world of contemporary Dutch painting.
