Wetering Portrait

Here's a very fine portrait I acquired by the artist Johannes Embrosius van de Wetering de Rooij (1877-1972). Wetering was born in Woudrichem in the Netherlands and studied art in The Hague and eventually obtained a royal grant. He is most known for his landscapes and water scenes, which makes this portrait quite rare. In fact, the highest auction record I could find for him was not a landscape but instead a scene of people reading on a terrace. (click for larger image)

If you are referring to the photo of Wetering in his studio, the answer is no - I do not. I found that image on the Internet. If you have any other images or info on the artist, please email me. Thanks.
