Jan Simon Knikker Sr. lived and worked in Hillegom, Leiden, Wassenaar and The Hague.


Already as a child Jan Simons’ talent was obvious and later on  he ecame a well known 'Hague' landscape painter.


Working uniquely with oil on canvas, he is a master in creating a melancholic atmosphere.


His fabulous technique is capable to paint a  perfect naturalistic scene with just a couple of brushstrokes. His son, Jan Knikker Jr., is a famous painter as well.
