Mari Andriessen (1897-1979)

a Young Mari Andriessen

You might find his sculptures a bit outdated, but they are still strong and are in most cases part of dutch history. There is Lely , the man who designed the AFSLUITDIJK, the DOKWERKER and many others that are equal iconic. Andriessen was one of the most important sculptors from the first part of 20th century in the Netherlands, but his works seem to be almost forgotten. That is the reason of this blog. Andriessen is important for dutch art and deserves some extra attention. 

A nice touch is this cinematictribute from the  POLYGOON JOURNAAL in which his 70th birthday is commemorated.
