Wijnand
Otto Jan Nieuwenkamp was born in Amsterdam in 1874. He was a multitalented
artist. He was a painter, draftsman, graphic artist, architect, writer and
ethnographer. He married his rich niece, Anna Wilbrink, in 1898. this allowed
him to travel with his boat - The Wanderer - in which his studio was
established.

Because
of his financial situation he could travel even more and further. Nieuwenkamp
was the first western artist on Bali and Lombok. He also travelled to other
Indonesian islands, Egypt, India and Italy. The main part of his work is
inspired by his travels. In 1920 he moved to Italy and bought a villa near
Florence. He lived here until his death in 1950.
