Biographical Information

Jules Pierre (Jan) De Leener was born in 1873 in Belgium. He married Teresa Watkins in 1902, so he must have arrived in Australia in his 20s. He was a contemporary of Henri Tebbitt and the two of them had a joint exhibition in Brisbane in 1914. He also worked with Neville Cayley. He was widely known in the Sydney, Newcastle and Lake Macquarie areas painting coastal and river scenes.

He is also believed to have also painted small scenes for pictures in the train carriages of the NSW Government Railways.

His works were exhibited in Wagga Wagga with the two artists mentioned above and were also sold by James Lawson in his auctions.
