About Eline de


Eline de Jonge is an award winning, internationally exhibiting artist in Europe and the United States. She lived in New York as a student, where her fascination and relationship with this city started. Later she moved there again for another eight years. She was often caught up in the energy of the people and intrigued by the ever-changing neighborhoods. The effect of the bright and sunny days in any season of the year on the shadows and movement of the people and buildings adds more drama to that sensation.

Her fascination resulted in a series of paintings depicting scenes such as Grand Central Terminal, street scenes with moving taxicabs, the ice skaters in the Wolman rink in Central Park and many Cityscapes, mixing architecture and people in a dynamic way. The focal point of her work is from height and distance, showing dramatic shadows and is created with oil or mixed media on large canvases. De Jonge is looking for a balance between energy and contemplation, between movement and quietness. Although the paintings depict dynamic city scenes they often convey a remarkable sense of calmness.
