Nieuwe Veenmolen – 18-11-17
A drawing of the ‘Nieuwe Veenmolen’ (MIll ‘Nieuwe Veen’) at The Hague, a place around the corner from where I live.
Amother impressionistic ink / pen drawing that I made on the same trip to Oudewater. This one is not far from it near Haastrecht. After all, everyone loves a good typical dutch landscape, rigtht?
This is one of the pastel drawings I made of the Gemeentemuseum at The Hague, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands, construed by the famous dutch architect Berlage.
The Gemeentemuseum at The Hague, Netherlands is one of the leading museums in the world with the biggest Mondriaan collection (among others ‘Victory Boogie Woogie’, admired by Barrack Obama at the spot) I felt doing a series turning Berlage’s architecture into cubism. This is one of them.
The second one of the series, turning to abstraction already. Still a lot of atmospheric depth and perspectives.
The first of the ‘Gemeentemuseum series’. This one still is in the recondo mode, investigating what I could do with the subject. I had a vague idea of cubism because there’s a lot in it and the building itself is a complex of cubes. A kind of ode to Mondriaan or would that be too corny?
