One of the first blogs i wrote was on Piet Klaasse. At that time i was under the impression that he only drew horses, but a publication a acquired recently opened my eyes. Beside many horse scenes, he draws people, musicians and landscapes. Specially the musician i appreciate. It is not my kind of art but you can see immediately that Klaasse is an accomplished artists and excels in his drawings. Full of mouvement and action they keep impressing.
My first encounter with work by Piet Klaasse was the time i bought a book on music, illustrated by Piet Klaasse. It certainly was not my kind of art i was interested in, but later i saw the quality of his illustrations. Specially his drawings and paintings of horses are of a rare quality. I compared his work with Rien Poortvliet’s but where Poortvliet tells a story with his illustrations, Klaasse doesn’t. HIs works stand as individual works of art and each tell a story of their own and are much more mature than those by Poortvliet. I will never buy a Klaasse for my collection but i know of people very much interested in his works. For those …know that www.ftn-books.com has the famous PIET KLAASSE TEKENT PAARDEN in its inventory.
I have added the BEWEGING book by Klaase to my inventory now.
