On Sunday May 28 my painter friend Peter Kempf and I went to give a presentation at the Koekkoek Museum in Cleves. We were also able to exhibit our Koekkoek inspired works. The visitors came to witness our traditional painting techniques. We had many friendly discussions and were given a lot of praise.
This year the museum is also holding a special exhibition with master pieces of one of Koekkoek´s contemporaries and admirers Johannes Warnardus Bilders (Utrecht 1811-1890 Oosterbeek). His large size paintings are really worth a visit and add to the enjoyment you get looking at B.C.Koekkoek´s works who once owned the house the museum is in.
We were only there for the day but the Warnardus Bilders exhibition can be viewed until June 25. (Opening times: Tue – Sat 2 – 5 pm , Sun & Bank Holidays 11 am – 5 pm).
The photographs above give you an idea of our event.
