Ever since Rudi Fuchs for the first time presented his friend and artist Per Kirkeby in the Gemeentemuseum , i have been an admirer. First and foremost an admirer of his paintings. But when in the early nineties a brick sculpture was realized in the inner garden of the Gemeentemuseum i became an instant fan of his sculptures too. His brick sculptures are typical Kirkeby and the use of bricks make these sculptures stand out from the others of his time. There is another sculpture specially made for the Caldic collection which i admire too.

The trick is …it looks closed…but it is open…A must see when you visit Wassenaar. To prepare your visit look at the books on Kirkeby at www.ftn-books.com
