Notes


The painting belongs to the latest period of the artist's oeuvre as after 1971 Willem Hussem almost exclusively focused on geometric abstraction. Straight lines and a contrast between a monochrome background and several bold forms of colour are characteristic of this period. Favouring such compositions, Willem Hussem exposed an interplay between form and colour (Literature: Steenbruggen, H. Willem Hussem, tussen schrift en leegte, Eindhoven: Stichting Plint, 1994).
