ARTIST BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH: Richard (Dick) Van Den Hoogen studied in The Netherlands, Germany, and France. In 1950 Dick moved to Canada and began working out of Toronto, Ontario. He moved to Calgary in 1967 where he began producing artworks and exhibitions with The Gainsborough Art Gallery. Dick’s subjects range from paintings of Native portraiture to cowboys & horses to lithographs of historic Calgary based sandstone architecture. These sandstone lithographs were created as a tribute to the historic buildings of the city of Calgary; Dick had witnessed how they were diminishing and was determined to keep them alive forever within his artwork. In 1976 the Government of Alberta commissioned a portrait of the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta, Honorable Ralph E. Steinhauer, which is on permanent display in the Alberta Legislature building in Edmonton. Dick continued passionately with his art practice until his death in 1978.
