Worlds apart in their art but with one common factor in their lives. Because of the blog on Liebermann, i Realized that there were many famous artist who visited at one time in their life the Netherlands and worked together with dutch artists or were in residence to refresh their point of views and make some impressive works of art. So did Claude Monet who visited more than once de Zaanse Schans to make some impressive and beautiful impressionist paintings
and one century later there was Keith Haring who stayed a month in Amsterdam and during that time he made the “velum” in the Stedelijk Museum.
There are more examples to be found but these two sprung to my mind when i thought about the frequent times Liebermann spent his summer holiday in the Netherlands.
On both artists there are some nice publications to be found at www.ftn-books.com
