Henk van Vessem (1939)

For me van Vessem is a typical dutch abstract painter. Bright colors and a kind of abstraction that is common among dutch painters and perhaps the way these paintings feel familiar makes me less of a fan. It is a kind of art which is much appreciated by those who seek a decoration on the wall and decide for a brightly colored abstract painting. Perhaps this is a too negative approach to his painting, but since this is a personal blog  i am allowed to express my opinion on an artist and his works. I read somewhere that there are works by van Vessem to be found in the collection of the Royal House of Orange, but this does not automatically mean that one have to admire his art.

Still has a nice publication available which included an original lithograph and i can understand why others like the colorful paintings by van Vessem.
