Classic Beauties
Artists, Italy, and the Esthetic Ideals of the 18th century
All over mid-eighteenth century Europe, people watched with bated breath as excavations in Italy uncovered artistic treasures of stupefying beauty. It inspired artists to rediscover classic physical beauty and perfect its depiction. They also sparked a craze for travel among young aristocrats across the continent. Many undertook the Grand Tour: a pilgrimage to Italy, and in particular Rome, lasting many months. Among them were Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and the ‘Count and Countess of the North’ (the later Russian Tsar Paul I and his wife Maria Fyodorovna). Arriving in the Eternal City, Grand Tourists encountered renowned artists: Pompeo Batoni, Anton Raphael Mengs, Angelika Kauffmann and – most famous of all – Antonio Canova.

Outsider Art Gallery


In the Outsider Art Gallery changing exhibitions of well-known and less known outsiders from the Netherlands and abroad take place. You will find paintings, drawings, prints, ceramic statues, sculpture, collages, photos and textile art. All works are for sale, the entrance to the gallery is free.
The Outsider Art Gallery is founded in 2016 by Cordaan care organisation in cooperation with the Hermitage Museum Amsterdam and Museum het Dolhuys Haarlem.

The art in the Outsider Art Gallery is often unconventional. Most the artists have an intellectual or mental disability. They are not concerned with commercial targets and their works do not reflect current trends in art. The art comes bubbling up from within – it is in their minds and just needs to come out. Their work is fascinating, versatile and very pure. The Outsider Art Gallery offers a fully-fledged art platform for these colourful artists, not inside the walls of a care organisation, but rather in an inspiring museum environment.

Outsider Art Studios

Currently a group of 15 artists is at work in the Outsider Art Studios, located above the gallery. They are accompanied by professional artists and pedagogical employees and work on their own art: painting, drawing, print making and digital media. In the studios companies or groups of individuals can also attend art workshops led by an outsider artist.

Outsider Art Lease

The Outsider Art Lease Programme allows you to borrow outsider art works. For more information about workshops, guided tours and/or art lease please look at: www.outsiderartgalerie.nl. Entrance is free.

Two female birds in nature, 2016 (50x60cm)

Solo exhibition Sijtse Keur

13 June 2018 - 2 September 2018 

Solo exhibition Sijtse Keur
Everything is possible in the colourful paintings of Sijtse Keur (1951). It can be winter and summer simultaneously. In the upper world a volcano spits fire, in the underworld snow covers the branches of a tree. He always works by heart. Nature plays a big role in his paintings. “The people who see my work have to discover my landscape and be surrounded by it, like me” he says.

Monography
Visual artist and creative therapist wrote the monography ‘SIJTSE KEUR a man of freedom’. She interviewed the artist about his life and work. The publication is for sale in the Outsider Art Gallery.

Opening 13 June 2018 16h30
