Koninklijke Subsidie voor Vrije Schilderkunst, 1980

vrije schilderkunst nikkels

Every year the KONINKLIJKE SUBSIDIE VOOR VRIJE SCHILDERKUNST is granted to promissing, youthful artists. This series of 9 consecutive years is not randomly chosen by me. The artists that received the price are from my generation and many i have known or know personally and some are even present in our personalcollection. The reason to present these artists in this series now is because this generation is appearing on auction sites at these days, fetching such low prices that for many of you an original work of art is feasable. These artist deserve a bigger platform and your support. Many of them still make great art, some have stopped their art career, but most of them are still working every day in their studios. The series contains 9 blogs all devoted to the catalogue designed by Walter Nikkels which was published in 1987 on these artists and the price they won. This series of 7 years appears to have been important to dutch modernart and from a historical perspective it is nice to see that in the Eighties great artists and great art surfaced.

here is the first year is present to you. 1980
