Historic Buildings, Homes & Villages by John Vander
John Vander is famous around the world for his depiction of historic buildings, homes and villages through Australia as well as overseas. The history behind a scene is always important to John.
John’s talent is obvious, however his fame is directly due to many of his original paintings being reproduced in prints, calendars and books throughout the world. Many homes and institutions have a John Vander print on their walls, making John’s works readily recognisable.
John’s paintings stand out from other artists because of their accuracy. Right down to the last chimney, window or verandah post. This accuracy is achieved not by using brushes but a set of pallet knives and carefully observing the particular scene.
