June 1918. A historic meeting takes place in Groningen. Artists Jan Altink, Toon Benes, Johan Dijkstra, Willem Reinders and Jan Wiegers want to collaborate with artists from Groningen. It was Altink who suggested the name: De Ploeg had to plow and develop the undeveloped Groningen art fields like the landscape itself. During the first exhibition in 1919, one hundred and eleven works by twenty exhibitors could be admired. In addition to the founders, other artists also joined de Ploeg around that time: Jan Jordens, George Martens, Alida Pott and HN Werkman.
