Hans Werdehausen (1910-1977)

Schermafbeelding 2019-07-16 om 15.55.52

One of the reasons i decided to write this almost daily blog was to expand my knowledge on art and artists from lats century and that is why i stumbled upon Hans Werdehausen., An artis which i did not know of , but who painters touch is typical for the decades hew was producing his art within. Abstraction, Constructivism and cubism mix together and belnd into a personal style.

I recently bought the Recklinghausen catalogue from 1958, which is now available at www.ftn-books.com  and i must say that i like his work. If i had a house with 50’s and 60’s furniture there is no doubt in my mind and i would heartely recommend his art for decoration . These compositions are so typical for the Fifties and Sixties and certwainly have a quality of their own. Maybe in the future i must look for his works at auction 😉

Polariteit and PolaritÀt, 1961 exhibition

No difference in name of the exhibition. Just a different spelling. One is for the 1961 Stedelijk Museum and the other for the 19761 Recklinghausen exhibition. Both are designed by Willem Sandberg, almost identical covers and the use of different sorts of paper is equal too. …….But there is a difference. The German catalogue contains 208 pages and the dutch only 140 pages. I am still wondering if the complete exhibition was at the Stedelijk Museum or that the Recklinghaus exhibition was much more complete. I prefer the german one and i wish i could have seen this one. It is such a great exhibition and must be counted as one of the greatest exhibitions from the second half of last century.

Both catalogues are now available at www.ftn-books.com
