When he exhibited his work in 1910 in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the light of the 'Luminists' radiated from the walls. At that moment Van Wijngaerdt must have realized that he had missed the connection with modern art. A rapid catch-up followed; in which he still incorporated luminism. In 1914 he radically changed course: dark and bright colors appeared on his linen, in bright contrasts. Details gave way to large surfaces, placed against each other almost without lines. This new and very expressive painting style was widely imitated.
