Biography   Taco Mesdag


Taco Mesdag was a Dutch banker and painter.  He was the son of the banker Klaas Mesdag and Johanna Willemina, and worked with his younger brother Henry in the banking business of his family.

Like his brother Hendrik Mesdag, he eventually also chose to paint as a profession. Together they played an important part in the Hague School* Pulchri Studio*, where Hendrik served as president and Taco as treasurer.

Taco was taught by Paul Gabriel among others. Mesdag is best known as the painter of the landscape of Drenthe. Much of his work was donated by his widow, Geesje van Calcar, to the Groninger Museum.

On the Internet, many of his works are displayed in the Webmuseum Mesdagvancalcar.
