I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.

Nard Kwast

As an experienced artist, I create various works of art in classical painting. My speciality is creating portraits, still-life compositions and landscapes. I also paint paintings on commission, with as central theme my love for the old masters and the techniques and materials used.
I also paint high quality painted reproductions of old masters, such as Rembrandt van Rijn.I was recently asked to become an Ambassador for Royal Talens of the solvent-free Cobra line, which I am of course proud of!

Rembrandt Paintings

Rembrandt’s paintings are very popular among people who appreciate classical painting. If you would like a lifelike Rembrandt reproduction, then you can contact me, or go straight to Rembrandt Paintings for more information.

Reproduction of well-known painters and old masters

With a great deal of passion and knowledge of the classical painting of old masters, I reproduce famous paintings of very high quality, using the old painting techniques and materials. Considering my knowledge of 17th century paintings and the painting techniques of Rembrandt, I stand out from other artists. I work internationally, so I also accept commissions from abroad.
