Joop Polder (1939) is one of the most famous contemporary Dutch artists.
"The Dream world by Joop Polder. Joop Polder gets his inspiration from architecture and from his own dreams. Joop Polder’s paintings are restful and quiet, as a strong contrast to the stress of everyday life."
Joop Polder was born in 1939 in The Hague, in The Netherlands. He has degrees from several art academies in Europe and has successfully worked as an artist for many years. Joop Polder gets his inspiration from architecture and from his own dreams. In fact, most of his paintings are the product of his dreams and represent the way he would like to see the world around us. Joop Polder’s paintings are restful and quiet, as a strong contrast to the stress of everyday life. His paintings are filled with trains and trams, for which he has a passion. You could even say that sometimes they behave like human beings. His enormous collection of antique small-scale models reflects this passion.
Joop Polder’s paintings are shown in a select number of galleries and have become part of important international public and private art collections, such as the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, the private art collection of King Willem-Alexander and Princess Beatrix, and other members of the Dutch Royal family.

A dreamy afternoon II, 80x70 cm. Price on request.
"This painting depicts the combination of traveling through the world with for me experiencing the architecture of Europe, the warmth of the sun, seeing how beautiful life is, and this accompanied by a good glass of wine and trams from Portugal around me.
Blue trams from my youth, dream images that make me happy. The world is always in motion with a lot of unrest both in nature and in people, but beauty is all around us. I try to radiate peace and happiness in my work and how beautiful the world is."
