"A painter with great Dutch works: Beautiful skies, Dutch light, in short, beautifully atmospheric
work. "Light and air, which are the great magicians," says Jan Hendrik Weissenbruch.
"It comes from above." A real pleinair painter. In all weathers working outside to grab the moment "
(André Groeneveld Noordwijk paintingfestival 2011)"
