Schermafbeelding 2019-08-11 om 14.45.55

Chaim Levano was born on January 1, 1928 in Heerlen, Limburg, Netherlands. He was an actor, known for Warum Ulli sich am Weihnachtsabend umbringen wollte (2005), De zwarte meteoor (2000) and Baantjer (1995). He died on February 17, 2016 in Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands.

This in short all that i found on Levano, but there must be much more, since a very impressive publication, including a DVD on his career was published by Huis Clos. Everything is done with the utmost tastte. design by Piet Gerards, photography by Koos Breukel and a movie by Kees hin. This is a AAA production and now available at http://www.ftn-books.com

Toon Teeken (1944)

Schermafbeelding 2018-02-03 om 13.49.07

I have been fascinated by the works of Toon Teeken for some decades now. I first encountered his works in the Bonnefanten Museum Maastricht in 1986 where he had an exhibition at that museum together with Fons Haagmans. I loved both, but slightly preferred the works by Teeken.

Since, i followed his exhibitions at museums and galleries. Because Teeken is represented by gallery Nouvelles Images which is quite nearby and easy for me to visit. I could follow his development as an artist. I  love his works but saw them rise in price with every new exhibition and becoming financially out of reach for me, but sometimes you are in luck…..  I found one of the most important works by Teeken coming up for sale and made a direct bid for it ….. and won.

I hoped to find a large wall for it at our home, but i miscalculated the space needed for such a large painting and had to store it. It is now stored for some years and it has become clear that there is no space available for it in the future and therfore it is now for sale at ftn-art at a price half of the gallery price. A bargain price for a painting which is much larger than the standard sized ones usually for sale.  But this one really needs space being 260 x 200 cm. it is an unsually large work , but when you have an office or conference offices i can highly recommend this one. Affordable and impressive and artistically an important work by a great dutch artist…Toon Teeken.

Its provenance…Artesia bank / Maastricht who had it in their entrance.

for more information see ftn-art

There are some nice Teeken publications available at http://www.ftn-books.com
