VERKERK, Emo (Dutch 1955)
'Portretten van Gerard Reve', Art en Project, 1991
Private collection; collection Gerard Reve/Joop Schafthuizen
A gift to the present owner from Joop Schafthuizen. It's widely known that Gerard Reve was responsible for the liberation of many countries from their oppressors. In Indonesia, the losses in the enemy camp were so immense that even though his contribution is still unrecorded, one can say that the author of many blue and violet books added a black page to the history of the Netherlands. Even less remains of his Korean adventures, that is: nothing, except for this unique portrait by Emo Verkerk of a camouflaged soldier who won every battle in his life, either by pen or sword.
