Dutch artist William Heytman has established a reputation for innovation and for improving his style through colour, composition and a bold subject matter. His work reflects a particular talent for influencing temperature and mood with his choice of colour, transporting the viewer to a variety of sceneries.
Apart from the lessons from Dutch painter J.W Heijting, Heytman is very much a self-taught artist. However, it would not be too far fetched to say that painting is in William Heytman’s blood, being a descendant of the “Dutch Frenchman” J.B.Jongkind (1819 – 1891).
After leaving school, Heytman started experimenting with pastels and watercolours, later choosing to concentrate on oil in particular. He held his first exhibition in 1976 in Middleburg, Zeeland, the Dutch province that has since remained his home.
Having painted for over twenty years, Heytman has irrefutably carved a niche for himself in the world of contemporary Dutch painting. His established reputation and inarguable talent make his paintings not only of high calibre, but furthermore a secure investment.
