    Janice: You wrote about JHS in the Balarat Gallery: “Jan Hendrik Scheltema
    Landscape painter. Sentimental in subject matter, cattle, horses and the idealised rural life, but his use of colour to create atmosphere was just amazing. What we still use today to create depth and perspective by the use of warm and cool colours is clear in his work.” Great, Thank you, We are now getting there, What a relief! Knowing that Australian reference books from 1993 began to print that JHS was thought to colorblind. Indeed the Ballarat gallery had a label with their “Water at last painting” painting by JHS that it “is painted in monochrome, leading to the speculation that he may have been colorblind”. It is anything but monochrome and he was clearly not colorblind. JHS did not do monochrome, or very rarely. To the late Dr Jeekel, who was the late artist’s great nephew, they (Geal Ramsey 2001) wrote that was not malicious, referring to the reference in the 1994 McCulloch Art encyclopedia which stated as much. I stumbled onto that correspondence after Jeekel’s death. I still have the originals. Many examples I can cite to show the damage done by that ref books’ silly invention. Art writers and ref books should annotate and provide their sources about non-opinion facts, I’d say. Check these out:
