Dirk Smorenberg is one of the Netherlands’ few Art Deco painters.
The self-taught artist initially lived and worked in Alkmaar and Bergen. Like his friend Dirk Filarski he was influenced by the Swiss expressionist Ferdinand Hodler.
After a period of wandering with Filarski through Europe and the United States, Smorenberg settled in Oud-Loosdrecht in 1924, where his work took a different turn. He painted figures and flowers but more particularly decorative landscapes that were inspired by his Noord-Holland surroundings, a province abounding in water.
