Jan Bleys 1868-1952.
Master at making floral pastels
Johannus Coenraad (Jan) Bleijs was born in 1868 in Hoorn. His son and pupil Cyriacus Adrianus Maria Bleijs (Cyriacus) was born in 1895 in Amsterdam. He lived and worked mainly in Hoorn, Amsterdam and Bergen. Like his brother Adrianus, he was a pupil of his father Adrianus Adrianus Cyriacus Bleijs. Also he attended the State Academy of fine arts in Amsterdam. He painted and drew figure paintings, landscapes and still lifes. Jan Bleijs illustrated books and magazines. He signed with J. and/or Jan Bleijs.
The Bleijs family came from the vicinity of Rijswijk and settled in Hoorn in 1794, where Johannus Bleijs was working as a surgeon. His son Adrianus Bleijs (1795-1876) had a son Johannus (1816-1888), who had his son Adrianus Cyrianus Bleijs in 1842.
Although he was born in Hoorn, Jan Bleijs spent most of his working life in Amsterdam. The work he made during his youth, acquired him the Royal stipend, through which he could further develop his talent. He was nineteen years old when he got his first job: making an altarpiece on copper in the St. Nicholas Church, a building that was designed by his father, architect A.C. Bleijs. In the O.L. Vrouwegasthuis, which was also designed by his father, he made a mural. He painted the stations of the cross for the church of Assendelft.
During his life, Jan Bleijs focused on watercolours and especially portraits. He had a large family - with nine children - and their care left him with little rest. His clients were among the well-known Amsterdam families. In between the commissioned portraits, he made many illustrations, especially back when it was not yet possible for newspapers to print pictures. This brought him into contact with the chief editor of De Telegraaf newspaper. Jan Bleijs drew portraits for this newspaper for years.
Jan Bleijs’ work is part of the collection of the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem.
Although his family name was ‘Bleijs’, he signed Jan Bleijs as ‘Bleys’.

Mr. Arne Bleijs, grandson of painter Adri Bleijs and administrator of the Bleijs family archive, states that there is a misconception that a lot of work that are signed with ‘Cyr Bleijs’ is attributed to his great-grand father Cyriabus Bleijs (1842-1912).
Cyricus and his father Jan collaborated a lot and it is sometimes unclear who painted what. We have two paintings which were clearly made by the same painter, but one is signed by Jan and the other by Cyriacus. Cyriacus also signed with Cyriacus, Cyr, Cyr Jansz or Cyriac Bleys. To keep it simple, Cyriacus Bleijs’ son is also called Cyriacus (1937-2003), who painted in the same way as his father and also signed his work with Cyriacus or Cyr Bleys.
