Current Exhibitions - Galerie Nieuw Schoten, art consultancy
We have the great honour of exhibiting unique paintings and watercolours from Constant Nieuwenhuys. You are welcome at the opening of this show on Sunday the 29th of January from 13.00 to 17.00.
In 1956 the Dutch artist Constant Nieuwenhuys (1920 - 2005) (previously the founder of the COBRA movement and member of Situationist International) bode farewell to painting and commenced a large-scale architectonic and urban project he dubbed â€˜New Babylonâ€™. From this moment on he worked for almost 20 years continuously on these ideas, expressed not only in scale models, drawings and graphics but also as manifestations, writings and lectures. With his revolutionary ideas, Constant managed in a short space of time to occupy a prominent place in alternative architecture and the discourse surrounding it.
Beside of the works of Constant we also show the work of: Henri Frederic Boot, Johan Buning, Constant, Henk Fonville, Piet van Heerden, Anton Heijboer, Germ de Jong, Harm Kamerlingh Onnes, Kees Maks, Alexander van Maasdijk, Alexandre Matos, Aad van der Meer, Geo Poggenbeek, Coks Pijnacker Hordijk, Georges RobÃ¨r, Wim Steyn, Kees Verwey, Hubert de Vries, Willem Wenckebach and the brothers Johann Bernhard & Arnold Wittkamp.
