Norbert Buchsbaum (1925-1998)

Norbert Buchsbaum

An important blog, not because Buchsbaum has become important for dutch art, but for me personally he was the man who introduced me into Modern Art. He was the founder of ARTA (1947)and stayed with Arta until 1979. After this period he travelled and moved to France. During his ARTA years i became a regular customer and because of him i acquired some beautiful photographs and etchings. Some of these purchases were financially succesfull and some not, but at the time all seemed relevant and interesting and even almost 50 years later some have proven to be excellent purchases (Lucien Clerque). I know that Buchsbaum was a gifted photographer himself but rarely encountered books, but now i finally have found one which is now for sale at
