Willem van Leusden

Willem van Leusden (1886 – 1974) was a Dutch artist who lived and worked in Maarssen. 

From 1902 to 1906 he studied at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten (Royal Academy of Fine Arts)  in The Hague. Subsequently, he studied under Pieter Dupont at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (State Academy of Fine Arts) in Amsterdam. 

Van Leusden was an engraver, etcher and lithographer; a painter, draughtsman, pen draughtsman, and also a furniture designer. Until 1915 he painted many cathedrals and cityscapes, from then he began to work in a cubistic style and also made abstracts. 

Some of his works are in the collections of the Hague Gemeentemuseum and the Centraal Museum in Utrecht.
