PARTIALLY NUDE WOMAN, Leo Jansen (Dutch 1930 – 1980) oil painting on canvas, signed lower right, stamped and thumb printed and copyright on verso, 24 x 18”. This could be one of his earlier works as the woman resembles the bronzed Malaysian girls that began his art passion. Good overall condition as shown, small dent/stretch in canvas, see photos. As always with Leo’s paintings he captures the beauty in the female body and expressions. Leo Jansen (1930-1980), born in Holland, moved to Indonesia when he was ten. There in the Tropics he began his craft by sketching bronze-skinned Malaysian girls for leisure. He returned to the Netherlands to study at the Academy of Art, to refine his growing mastery of the female figure. Like most Continental artists, he gravitated first to Paris, and quickly established himself as a portraitist of considerable talent. In 1962, he arrived in New York.
