Shortly before 1900, Gerard Westermann, from Leeuwarden, added at the State academy in Amsterdam. In doing so, he followed in the footsteps of city-mate J.H. Jurres, who after his academy days in Amsterdam had become a celebrated painter. Dream and history are initially Westermann's sources of inspiration. He chose his genre: knights, romantic scenes, figures and amazons, but also included Amsterdam cityscapes. His rich oeuvre shows a great gift for portraying figures, horses and riders, set in hefty colours and shapes, often bordering on Expressionism. Westermann was a board member of Arti and St. Lucas and taught between 1918 and 1945 at the academy where he began his artistic career.
