About Peter de Rijcke:

peterderijcke24mei2009zaankleinwebPeter de Rijcke (1945) studied during the second half of the 1960s at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, and besides followed a year of figure drawing at the State Academy of Fine Arts. He resides in the historic harbour town of Hoorn since 1972, and over the years has developed a singular style in painting landscape, city and harbour scenes, and portraits. In preparation of his work Peter de Rijcke sometimes uses the possibilities offered by digital photography and the computer, but he also works from nature. Ultimately, for him, the essence of painting and drawing lies in the classic process of craftsmanship of seeing, interpreting and executing manually. The mediums he applies are oils or acrylics on canvas, watercolour and gouache. His favourite painting haunts are the harbour areas of Amsterdam and Hoorn, the banks of the river Amstel, the coasts of the IJsselmeer, the Wadden Sea and Normandy. In 2010 he spent three weeks working in situ with Chinese artists in de vicinity of Shanghai.

In 1969 he debuted in Galerie Sergej in Amsterdam and has since exhibited widely in the Netherlands and abroad. His work was showed in the C.J. Tung Maritime Museum in Shanghai and the Jiangnan Museum of Art in Wuxi (China); in the Snug Harbor Cultural Center, NYC and the Mystic Maritime Gallery (USA); the Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven (Germany); the marine museums of Amsterdam and Rotterdam, Pulchri Studio in The Hague, the Northern Shipping Museum in Groningen and the Westfries Museum in Hoorn.

Peter de RijckePeter de Rijcke was the author of monographs on sculptor Truus Menger, artist Ton van Kesteren and wrote the exhibition catalogue text for J.C. Stoffels 1878ñ1952 (Drents Museum, Assen 2002). He was also editor of Weerspiegeld, the book about the Society of Dutch Marine Painters.
He is on the board of the Dutch Society of Marine Painters.

A message from Ton Verdegaal


A message from Ton Verdegaal. Owner of Dutch Accent.

Lots of art comes in at the moment. But also several paintings find a new owner. Therefore I like to show what was sold last sunday, a day I usually don’t work. Proud of these paintings, proud of and happy for the artists.
After some years pushing my studio, the local governement (DWI) helped me to transform my store and to change it into a new concept. I took risks, did not give up and I and my son Joeri worked hard and made many hours. It looks like it works out now and our business is getting a face.
Thank you so much Dienst Werk en Inkomen Amsterdam! And thank you Joeri (, he calculates a fair rate), for all your back up and feedback, the website, the webshop, all kinds of social media etc.! I am very glad with the developments.
