A very early pencil drawing by Beekman, The Hague area, when he still worked realistically.
Signed lower right and dated 1903. Beekman was then 16 years old!

Chris Beekman joined the Haagsche Plateelbakkerij Rozenburg in 1900. There he met Louis Soonius with whom he formed a close, but short, friendship. They worked closely together, also outside of Rozenburg. This is evident from the fact that Beekman, together with Aris Knikker and Louis Soonius, rented a studio on Noorderbeekdwarsstraat in The Hague. Together with other students, they went out on weekends to draw. An example of such a drawing is the work above. In 1909, Beekman resigned from Rozenburg and turned his back on his somewhat traditional friends to explore the path of abstraction. Influenced by socialism and De Stijl, he embarked on the path of modern art and experimented with the various -isms of his time. Similar drawings are included in the collection of the Kunstmuseum Den Haag.
