My Exhibition at a Museum in Cleves

Cows Watering – after B.C.Koekkoek

The B.C.Koekkoek museum in Cleves will offer a special attraction on 15 May this year. Following in the footsteps of B.C.Koekkoek a friend of mine and I will be there to demonstrate how the master would have painted his landscapes. We will copy and paint works of Barend Cornelis Koekkoek (Middelburg 1803-1862 Cleves). At the same time there is a special exhibition of works by one of his contemporaries and admirer  Cornelis Lieste (Haarlem 1817-1861 Haarlem).

My friend Peter Kempf and I will produce reproductions of Barend Cornelis Koekkoek´s works to demonstrate how a painting develops from a sketch and underpainting to the detailed representation of an impressive landscape. Both Peter and I have studied his works and have developed our individual styles to interpret the master. While Peter Kempf concentrates on oil paintings I paint in acrylics which have only started to conquer the art world some 50 years ago.

At the Koekkoek Museum we will be demonstrating how we work offering finished originals for sale. These come in various sizes from miniatures to some large-scale paintings by Peter Kempf.

Come and visit the Koekkoek Museum in May and experience the works of Cornelis Lieste and the museum´s original works by B.C. Koekkoek. At the same time you will be able to witness how painters of the 21 century still revel in the skills of the old masters.

Gardening fans will be able to enjoy an additional attraction as the museum´s garden will be open to visitors together with many other famous private gardens in Cleves.
(opening times: House and Garden 11 am till 5 pm, reduced entrance fees incl. exhibition and painting demonstration just 3 Euros)

We expect a number of visitors to come from the Netherlands as both Koekkoek and Lieste were born there.
