Pieter Wenning 1873 (The Hague, Holland) - 1921
Lived/Active South Africa
The eldest son of a Friesland family with long artistic associations, he had a father whodealt in prints and artists' materials; during his school years the family moved to Leeuwarden, where a noted local art master, H Bubberman, encouraged his drawing ability and helped him to appreciate the works of Dutch painters in the local gallery; Pieter Wenning was not a robust youth, however, and his parents persuaded him to avoid the precarious life of a professional artist. He therefore joined the Dutch Railways, reserving his free time for painting; Pieter Wenning gained swift promotion and was transferred to Zaandam.
