Jan Toorop

O Grave, Where Is Thy Victory? (1892)
Jan Toorop (1858-1928) was a Dutch painter whose works straddle the space between the Symbolist painters and Art Nouveau.

He was born in Java, and studied in Delft and Amsterdam. He developed a style based on a mixture of Javanese motifs with Symbolism, and his willowy figures and curvilinear designs prefigure Art Nouveau.
