Established Dutch artist
Ruud Verkerk was born in Stolwijk in 1957 and lives in Gouda, in the Netherlands.
After graduating from the Academy of Art in 1980, he became a professional painter.
Verkerk’s early works were based on fantasy, but soon he moved towards typical Dutch Realism, painting still- lifes and landscapes. The style cannot be compared with 17th Century art, but it undoubtedly represents 20th Century Realism.
The works have been published in several books which include the best of 20th century Dutch realist painters. He also exhibits regularly in several of the most prestigious galleries and museums in The Netherlands London, Berlin, St. Petersburg (Russia).
