Leo Jansen (1930-1980), born in Holland, moved to Indonesia when he was ten and there began his craft by sketching bronze-skinned Malaysian girls for leisure. He returned to the Netherlands to study at the Academy of Art then gravitated to Paris, establishing himself as a portraitist of considerable talent. In 1962, he arrived in New York before eventually settling in southern California. For eighteen years, he was commissioned by Playboy Magazine to paint the “Playmate of the Month.” In his first six years, he was the artist chosen to paint 58 out of 72 portraits. Because of the softness and light with which he infused his portraits, he was chosen by several companies to do commemorative plates. Jansen is, perhaps, best known throughout the United States and Europe for his Mother’s Day plates and puppies plate series. His untimely death from an apparent heart attack (on December 20, 1980) at 50 years of age brought an end to a brilliant talent
