Print Room: Animals, Villages and Landscapes

Persbeeld tentoonstelling Van dieren, dorpen en landschappen Paula Modersohn-Becker, Edzard Koning, Dick Ket, Jan Mankes en Julie de Graag

Over the coming months, visitors to the Print Room exhibition areas of the Gemeentemuseum will have the chance to relive the days of yesteryear. In works on paper by Julie de Graag (1877-1924), Dick Ket (1902-1940), Edzard Koning (1869-1954), Jan Mankes (1889-1920) and Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907), they can rediscover a lost world of fairytale woodland scenes and rustic landscapes, populated almost exclusively by animals and peasant children. These five artists of the early twentieth century found their subjects close to home. All of them existed then – and survive now – in the margins of the art world and art history. Today, in fact, some of them are almost forgotten. And that is a shame, since their work has certainly stood the test of time.
