Kunstschilder Simon Moulijn

Simon Moulijn, Rotterdam, 1866 - 1948

Moulijn attended the Rotterdam Art Academy at the same time as Van Oosterzee and, like him, went in search of dreamy and tranquil landscapes. They became friends during their study but it is not known whether they visited Drenthe and Zweeloo together. Moulijn’s wide-ranging oeuvre included oils, watercolours, drawings, etchings, lithographs, while he also wrote about art and was involved as an organiser in the art world. The increasing stylisation in his work later led him towards a more abstract form of representation.
