This exhibition tells the story of the renowned Amsterdam gallery, Collection d’art, which from 1969 to 2004 was home to a broad range of art lovers. With Collection d’art, founder Cora de Vries made people who were known or unknown, friends or passersby, students and critics all part of contemporary developments in art, from realism to inspired geometry and post-war Expressionism, from Co Westerik to Markus Lupertz, from Armando to Karel Appel. As a result, a loyal group of regular visitors and buyers, including several museum directors, quickly formed around Collection d’art. The gallery was a place where fellow art lovers came together in their shared interest and love for contemporary art.
Together with Miente Boellaard-Stheeman, the Cobra Museum presents an exhibition of selected works from the personal collection of Cora and Hans de Vries, with works by Constant, de Kooning, JCJ van der Heijden, Baselitz, Schoonhoven, Armando, Appel, Bogart and many more.
