CoBRA Amstelveen Reviews
Dec 14, 2007
CoBRA is dedicated to the European post war art movement of the same name, based in Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Brussels. The permanent collection includes work by Henry Harrup and Karl Appel. The overwhelming style of the movement is bright colours, cartoony animals, and strong lines. Most of the works are on paper, though there are a few scupltures too. The museum is spacious, airy, and has a cafe and a pricey shop. When I went, there was a special exhibition of contemporary Chinese art upstairs, including some very interesting video installations and mixed media sculptures.
The museum is a long way out of the centre, and I think it would only be worth the trip if you had a particular interest in post war art or a special exhibition.
