About the artwork


Tahitian Dancer

Signed Menno lower right

Oil on canvas, 80 x 60 cm


Menno was a pupil of the “Rijksacademie” in Amsterdam. In 1910 he came to Indonesia where he settled in Medan, Sumatra. During the twelve years he was in the East, he made several trips throughout the Indonesian archipelago and presumably a trip to Tahiti. In 1922 he returned to the Netherlands and settled in Rijswijk. He made the illustrations for an impressive amount of books on Indonesia and published and illustrated some books himself, such as Indische Penkrabbels (Jakarta 1912) and Nederlandsch Indië zoals het was, Menno’s Indische penkrabbels (Rijswijk 1956).
