We then apply several coats of varnish by hand to make the colours come to life and to protect against moisture and UV light. The canvas is stretched by hand on stretcher bars made with timber from sustainable forestry.

This reproduction on canvas of White Rooster by Jan Mankes is made with the greatest possible care to ensure that the colours are very close to the original painting that is hanging in the Museum MORE. Jan Mankes was born in 1889 in a Dutch village called Meppel. In 1904 the family moved to Delft and he started taking lessons at the Art Academy in The Hague. In 1913 he married a Dutch pastor. A few years later, Jan became ill and they hoped that being surrounded by nature would do him good, so together they moved to the North of the Netherlands. Jan Mankes produced around 200 paintings, 100 drawings and 50 prints before dying of tuberculosis at the age of 30.
The subjects of his artworks ranged from self-portraits to landscapes and studies of birds and animals. His early works mostly consist of dark birds with dark tones. He later started painting lighter coloured animals. When he was working with white, he was able to acquire a pearly lustre because of his soft brush strokes. He studied and sketched his subjects, mostly birds and farm animals, until he knew them by heart. He painted his paintings by memory. In this way he captures the essence of the subject, instead of being focused on a realistic portrayal. His paintings are often described as a fairytale-like and dreamy depiction of nature.
