André van der Vossen (1893-1963)

A typical dutch abstract artist who was inspired by many of his great contemporaries. Autodidact he now has a nice following of admireres in the netherland who collect his work. You can recognize influences of Matisse, Miro and Calder in his works, specially when he uses torn papers to make his compositions. Compositions which are constructivist on first sight , but study them more closely they become far more loose and less rigid then the constructivist compositions of these times. I personally like his work very much and it is still very affordable to collect. Pollock and Soulages can be recognized within some of his compositions too, but with a very large difference. …..These works are sold at 1/10000 of their price levels.

Andre van der Vossen worked as a teacher at the Dienst Esthetische Vormgeving PTT and Joh, Enschede as a graphic designer and was member of Vrij Beelden, Creatie (Co-founder), de Salon des Réalités Nouvelles in Parijs and with Liga Nieuwe Beelden.

Josef Zotti ( 1882-1953) ..Wiener Architect

A few years ago i found a very nice remainder stock of books on Josef Zotti, who i dit not know at that time. Triggered by the quality of the book i found that i really loved his works. Buildings and design go hand in hand and last year when we visited Vienna  i encountered many buildings which were designed by Zotti and saw the buildings “live” and was even more impressed. There are not many titles on this architect designer but this is the one i have in my stock which i can truly recommend and shows best why he is such a multitalented artist.
