Important ‘Nul artist’
The Kröller-Müller Museum has seven reliefs by Jan Schoonhoven, one of the most important Dutch artists of the 20th century. In 1960 he formed the ‘Nul group’ together with Armando, among others. This movement sought an art that was not ‘spoiled’ by the signature style or emotions of the artist.
The seven reliefs are fragile white works made of wood, cardboard, papier-mâché and paint. The works have lost their original clarity and therefore urgently require cleaning.
The costs for this conservation work are estimated at € 42,000.
