Loes van der Horst (1919-2012)

Loes van der Horst at work

A lesser known, but to me a highly important artist in the Netherlands was Loes van der Horst, she became one. of the first who had becaem a totally abstract/ constructivist artist. Mix Hussem, Carel Visser and Ansuya Blom , shake and …..there is the cocktail that represents Loes van der Horst.

It is the kind of art i like most and because not many museums have work by van der Horst in their collections ( the Kroller Muller has a fairly large collection) it is still to be acquired through auctions at reasonable prises. This is such an artist i can highly recommend.
