A few years before the pandemic (2017-2018) the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag organized an exhibitionon Anton Heyboer. Since the Sixties there was a strong connection between the museum and Heyboer , because Hans Locher , the curator at that time, was a stron fan of the early Heyboer and his choice has proven to be impeccable. Beautiful early etchings and drawings are now part of the collection of the museum and the exhibition showed that Heyboer has been developing his art through the decades. Perhaps less appealing than his eraly years, but the works from the end of his career impressed me very much. The catalogue published with this exhibition is without a doubt the best book on Heyboer since 40 years and now availabel at http://www.ftn-books.com. Heyboer’s position in dutch art is now very well established and this exhibition and catalogue show why.
