Biography Paul Jansen
The Dutch artist Paul Jansen (1960) began his artistic career as a photographer, and a certain photographic influence can still be found in his current paintings. The distinctive compositions and frameworks that characterize his cow portraits are a good example of this. The cow has become one of the most important themes in Paul Jansen's work during the last few years. The artist is really fascinated by the strange and sometimes absurd shape of this animal and the physical and unpretentious "being" that it conveys.
Unlike cattle painters of previous centuries where the cattle is more a part of, or decoration of, the landscapes of Jansen place the cow as far to the front so that there is almost no place for a landscape.
