I did not know Josephine Rutten, but found a very nice and excellent designed publication on her, which was published in 1995 by de Jong/ van Mourik . An edition of only 500 copies of which not many must have found their way to collectors and bookstores, because this is the first i encountered in 15 years. Rutten has found a language of her own and if there is one artist her works remind me of, it is Dubuffet. The use of colors and in some of them vague human shapes in her paintings made me think of this artist. Still the “art language” of Rutten is one of her own and i can truly recommend this nice publication on this artist.
