Frans de Wit deserves to be known better. Not only for his land art , but his sculptures were well ahead of their time. de Wit was well known in Rotterdam and surroundings , but hardly known outside Rotterdam. He deservedly was commissioned the VIERKANT EILAND IN DE PLAS , which wasd executed on the lowest spot in the Netherland well below sea level. A large project and just recently i learned of its existence. For those living in the neighborhood or visiting Rotterdam. The location is 1.5 kilometers east of the Kralingseplas. realized in a Nineties development and commissioned by CBK Rotterdam.

I think it is an important art work and certainly one of the most important works Frans de Wit realized. The special publication on Vierkant eiland inde plas is available at
