Charlotte Mutsaers ( continued )

One of my earliest blogs (2016) was dedicated to Charlotte Mutsaers. I explained the importance of Mutsaers for dutch art in general. Mutsaers has started as a teacher in art and as as higy original painter. I Think her paintings from the early Eighties belong to the most important ones from that period. This conclusion is not lightly taken. Yesterday evening i leafed throught the catalogue which was published on the occasion of her exhibition at the Koninklijke Bibliotheek in Den Haag and i was really impressed. Timeless, Poignant and colorful they impressed me once again. Some 25 yeasr ago, Mutsaers made a career swith and decided for a career in writing and since she has published some of the most important books in the dutch language. I like her books, but when i had to chose i always would chose one of her paintings instead of one of her books.
