Pieter Johannes Alexander Wagemans (The Hague, 25th of August 1879 - The Hague, 30th of August 1955) was a Dutch artist.
Wagemans was originally a home and decoration painter. At one point he also decided to be an art painter. He painted many cityscapes and sometimes ports, although there are also landscapes and still lifes of him available. His working field was located in the Hague, his birth place and city of residence, where he also did several versions of his most famous painting, “de Gevangenpoort”. In addition, he painted scenes in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Haarlem and Delft (Oostpoort).
Most of his paintings are large in size. His work is generally high in quality, which led to his paintings (the signature) being falsified and attributed to J.C.K. Klinkenberg, a painter of a larger stature and therefore yielding higher prices. Wagemans was also known, in technical terms, as a "colourist in a traditional-realistic style". It is less known that he also made mosaic.
His work is still regularly offered at auctions and in galleries and is also sold there. Wagemans is also described in "De Scheen".
The canvas could be cleaned and the painting has had repairs (see photo 5)
