I started to take in interest in the art of Ru van Rossem the time i acquired a large collection of small signed and dated etchings by the artist. Among them, small etchings, lithographs, art libris and new years wishes. They had some elements in common. The human figure was important as well as horses and religion.
These three elements define the works by van Rossem. Perhaps it is not your kind of art, but study these prints and you will discover that van Rossem was an etcher “pur sang”. and that the art of etching held no secrets for him.
has recently acquired the most important monograph on van Rossen which is now available
