Frank van Hemert…Zeven (continued)

zeven hemert

The day before yesterday i wrote a blog on the ZEVEN series by Frank van Hemert. But it was far from complete. On another bookshelf i found the book Reconstructie , published by the Haags Gemeentemuseum and written by Franz Kaiser . This contains several more paintings from the ZEVEN series. The reason why i had missed this is that i put the book apart from the rest of the Frank van Hemert publications, since most of the paintings it contains have been painted with the Red/Pink color that has caused so much trouble for Frank. Most of these paintings are considered to be lost, since the paint drips literally on the floor and unfortunately there is at this moment no solution to preserve them. I am a collector and i have been warned to be careful with these paintings and therefore i had placed the catalogue at hand….just to remember to be careful, but here are the paintings still in their prime condition, but after 30 years it is highly probable that most of these have been damaged beyond repair and must be considered lost.

(except for the painting above the text, the condition is excellent of this superb painting)
