Sander van Walsum - recente schilderijen, Kunstcentrum Haarlem, 2016


Donated by the artist


In summer 2016 Sander van Walsum had a solo exhibition at the Kunstcentrum Haarlem. In the preface to the exhibition catalogue Jop Ubbens, chairman Christie's Amsterdam at the time, gave his paintings the following characteristic: "Van Walsum is absoluut een kunstenaar in het diepst van zijn gedachten en zijn composities en onderwerpen passen naadloos in een kunsthistorische traditie van vaderlandse voorgangers als Isaac Israëls, Cornelis Vreedenburgh, van Dulmen Krumpelman en — iets dichter bij huis — Hans Bayens. En als je zijn oeuvre zou willen duiden, plak je er al snel het predicaat post- of laat-impressionisme op, weliswaar met een lichte touch richting hyperrealisme. Zijn grote inspiratiebronnen zijn dan ook Claude Monet, en dan met name het schilderij Hotel des Roches Noires in Trouville, dat in Musée d'Orsay hangt, en het intrigerende werk van Edward Hopper. Van Walsum kijkt goed naar de techniek en het kleurgebruik van deze kunstenaars, zonder hen te imiteren. Want eigentijds zijn z'n schilderijen zonder meer".
