Sam Drukker, the most famous
Dutch painter of New Realism, is in the spotlight. For example, in April 2022 a retrospective of his self- portraits will open in the Drents museum in Assen and the Jan in Amstelveen museum will give an overview of work from the years 2010 to 2021. Not only his oeuvre, but also the way in which he explains the metier in his lectures, shows that he has more than earned his spurs in the art world. Richard Rooze is also frequently inspired in the design of his glass objects by works of art by great masters such as Van Gogh, Matisse and Kirchner. The strength of his design is that this source of inspiration does not unfold at first sight, but produces its own visual language. It is precisely in the detailing, the color composition or the texture of an object that subtle reminiscences of well-known paintings by these artists are given.
