Detail Description

During the final preparations for PAN Amsterdam, the heirs of Bart van der Leck offered us a folder in which dozens of original works on paper by the artist have been preserved.

Besides some lithographs of the well-known composition 'Boerenmeisje met Koe' from 1921, the folder contained work that has not been shown to the public before, such as; preliminary studies on paper that are recognizable in well-known oil paintings such as 'Composition no.5 from 1918 (collection museum de Fundatie Zwolle) and 'Ploegen' from 1913 (collection Singer Laren) and a still life with apple and bulb vase from 1931.

Also beautiful small sketches of dancing figures, blooming flowers, a puppet show, a stylized interior, carpet designs, factory workers, etc.

The folder also contains large pieces including a charcoal drawing of a stylized dancer, a composition with a man and woman figure, a still life with sphere vase and apple from 1931 that is also executed in oil paint and a signed working drawing of a ceramic vase from 1952 (vase collection Kröller-Müller).

At the PAN we will present works from the folder amidst furniture and lighting designed by Gerrit Rietveld, Piet Elling and WH Gispen, under the title:
