Exhibition Henri Bol Fine Artist from Brabant

Exhibition Henri Bol Fine Artist from Brabant.

From Friday April 22nd until Sunday July 31st, 2022.

The life and work of Henri Bol is highlighted at two locations in the fortified town of Heusden. A careful overview of Henri Bol’s still life paintings has been put together in Het Blaauw Laaken Kunstkabinet. This gives a good overview of Henri Bol’s development as a fine artist. Attention is paid to his way of working and to the antique objects that he depicted in his still lifes. His work is also placed in the context of the artists who inspired him and with whom he felt connected.

The exhibition in Museum Het Gouverneurshuis focuses on the artistic family in which Henri Bol grew up, on the source of inspiration that the fortified town of Heusden was for him, and looks at the development of his career as an artist. On the basis of objects with which Bol surrounded himself in his art studio, a picture is created of the working method of the fine artist.

One Response to Exhibition Henri Bol Fine Artist from Brabant

  1. Hello Gallery. Just a bit of information.
    My name is John Mutsaers and I live in Australia. When I was a young boy I lived in Eindhoven and during that time I sometimes visited Kees Bol’s studio in Tongelre and watched him paint; I’ve always remained a fan. In 2008 my wife Mary and I were lucky to meet him again in his studio in Heusden and spent a little time with him. When we learned of his death in in 2009 I considered how lucky I was to meet him again.
    Kees Bol has been a major influence in my art career and my long time favourite painting of Kees was his “Het blauwe kooitje met witte kanarie”. This painting became the catalyst for a series I’ve worked on for the past five years or so. Finally my exhibition called “The Infinite Birdcage” opened last week at the ArtSpace Gallery in a town near where we live, Wonthaggi. It started with a small painting I did to commemorate Kees’ passing complete with the Brabantse flag at half-mast.
    The exhibition details are on my website http://www.johnmutsaers.com It shows this small painting and the history of how it evolved and giving credit to Kees Bol my life long inspiration.
    I was very grateful that you sent me one of Kees’ old brushes; I keep it in my studio always.
    Kind regards
    John Mutsaers
