Jan Vegter

Jan Vegter was a Dutch artist and drawing teacher. He was born in 1927 in Voorburg, a small town in the outskirts of  The Hague, and died there in 2009. After retiring in 1990, he created three series of drawings with handwritten captions. Two of them recalled his experiences of the Second World War, and the third was about his early travels to Paris after the war.
