the Chudnovsky collection 1900-1930

Schermafbeelding 2020-07-15 om 11.20.45

After 1989 there was a change in the relationship between Western Europe and Russia. The result of an exchange of exhibitions and the beginning of a fruitful collaboration between the Russian State museums and the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.

There was, of course, a highly successful and visited in large numbers Pusjkin collection exhibition and on a much smaller scale a few years later the Russian Avant-Garde exhibition at the Paleis Lange Voorhout Museum curated by Franz Kaiser. An exquisite exhibition with a selection chosen from the  Abram Chudnovsky collection.  personally i think this was, after the Malevich exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum a few years earlier, an exhibition which showed the quality of Russian art in the beginning of 20th Century. Great paintings from a visionary collector who collected his fellow country men and since never has been seen again in one of the European Museums. The catalogue of this exhibition and both other catalogues are now available at http://www.ftn-books.com.

Gerard Verdijk.. the Mountain of Einstein

Schermafbeelding 2018-03-07 om 10.25.35

People following this blog know of my admiration for the artist Gerard Verdijk.

Verdijk is becoming increasingly recognized as one of the most avant-garde and influential artists from the last century in the Netherlands, but now his name spreads slowly across the border . During his lifetime his works were collected all over the world and because Verdijk had admirers and collectors everywhere his works can be found in the most unlikely places. Because of his exhibitions in the Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany and even the US his audience grew slowly but constantly and after he had a large retrospective in Dordrecht 2 years ago it is now time for the largest publication ever on Verdijk.

The Mountain of Einstein will be published in an edition of only 500 copies by the end of 2018. It will be a hardcover edition; size : 30 x 30 cm., pages: 396 .

Price ; 99.00 euro

This book will not be available at http://www.ftn-books.com, but can be ordered with:
