About

 
Anneke Boot lives in the old centre of Leiden in the Netherlands. There, during her student time, she illustrated student magazines, which began her career as an artist.
Later on she turned to painting gouaches and further developed her style. At the present time she paints almost exclusively in oils.
She found her inspiration initially in France: on river banks, in wine making regions, at the coast, in the countryside and occasionally in or close to towns.
In recent years she also travelled through the Italian Tuscany and painted often in the surroundings of Florence.
Anneke Boot is a great admirer of Monet and Sisley and the Dutch painters Vermeer, Van Gogh, and Jongkind.

She is also held in high repute as a portrait painter. Well known personalities in Dutch politics and the business community have commissioned portraits to be painted by her, such as the Queen’s Commissioner Hans Wiegel, Minister Koos Andriessen, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Heijn and Art dealer Ivo Bouwman.

There is also great enthusiasm of her work outside the Netherlands. She has held expositions in places like Paris, London, Monaco and Atlanta. Some of her paintings can be found in cities such as Toronto, Philadelphia, New York, Monte Carlo and Paris.
