The works by Dutch artists Barend Blankert and Harry van der Woud are on display in the French Museum L.A.C. in Sigean France . Other selected artists by curator Maria Mineta are Harry Cox, Harry Holland, Jean Rustin, Volker Stelzmann and Co Westerik. A large audience attended the opening ceremony on April 9th. An accompanying catalogue with text by the famous art historian Edward Lucie Smith was published in co operation with the museum directors Piet Moget and Layla Moget.
Both Barend Blankert and Harry van der Woud were present at the opening and introduced their works to the collectors and visitors. Barend, the Master of Melancholia, attended us to the beautiful detail of the green rope in his work ‘Stoel’ (chair) from 2005 while Harry addressed the crowd on his work ‘Sceance met Eierschaal’ (scene with eggshell) from 2004, that depicts 4 self-portraits of the artist.
