Reinder Homan (Smilde, 1950) received his education at the Minerva Academy in Groningen and the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht. In 1990 he won the Dutch graphics award.
From his refined atmospheric landscapes and nature studies, the enormous control of the etching technique is apparent. Homan knows how to capture his subjects in zinc and copper with seemingly playful ease. The subjects are mostly taken from the nature of the area that is close to his heart: the Northern Netherlands. His work has been exhibited and included in the collections of the Rijksprentenkabinet in Amsterdam, Museum Boymans- van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Drents Museum in Assen and the Fries Museum in Leeuwarden.
