Jan Toorop  
Hello mr Evans,

I have a self portrait from Jan Toorop.(dutch painter)
I'm trying to get some information about it, but it,s not so easy to find it. Can you help me, or do you know somebody who can?

Thank you,

Answer
Dear Maarten,

Jan Toorop was a Dutch-Indonesian painter and unfortunately I did not come across this particular work in my research so I have no information to impart. However there is currently a catalog raisonné of Jan Toorop's work being prepared by Gerard van Wezel January Toorop, who works for the Netherlands Cultural Heritage Agency. I would suggest contacting him and getting his opinion as he appears to be the expert on Jan Toorop's works. I tried to find his contact information but all I was able to find is his Linkedin profile which you can try contacting him through here if you'd like:  nl.linkedin.com/pub/gerard-van-wezel/77/53/939
