About the Artist
Johannes ‘Joop’ Smits decided at age 50 to change course and to be an amateur painter. He was autodidact and painted anything that interested him, especially street scenes of children or older people, and horses. He created his paintings from his own memory. He never afterwards changed anything about his paintings. With his paintings, he tried to show his personal vision on life.
