Jan Grosfeld (1956-2019)

Jan Grosfeld

Jan Grosfeld (Valkenswaard, 1956 – Amsterdam, 2019) was a very well respected Dutch artist who’s works have found their way to the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen and many other institutional collections.

This is practically all I could find on this artist. I did not know him personally, but I knew his works since I visited gallery Nouvelles Images and the museum Boymans van Beuningen frequently and both had large collections of this artist. What I remember is that his prices could be described as “affordable” but his art was priceless. Always his compositions were based on contrast, black and deep browns against white and creme backgrounds.

This made his works stand out and made that I still remember his works. Becaue of his lesser popularity there are not many publications to be found , but there is one I can recommend. It is the Nouvelles Images published :Jan Grosfeld, Me-LKCHO_COLA_DEREEP, which is now available at www.ftn-books.com
