Visiting Zwolle, the capital city of the Dutch province of Overijssel.

 

On my way to ‘Museum de Fundatie’ (located at the Blijmarkt 20) I walked the historical city centre.

 

The collection of the museum, housed in a former palace, consists of old and contemporary art based on the collection of the founder, Dirk Hannema (1895-1984).

 

My reason to visit the museum was the temporary exhibition: ‘Portraits of a Love’ by Marte Röling (until May 24th 2010).

Marte Röling, a known Dutch female artist, painted 55 portraits of  Henk Jurriaans after his passing away in 2005. All the paintings are 2 x 2 meters and very colourful.

The paintings are her personal love story after living together for 36 years.

 

‘Museum de Fundatie’ has another location; ‘Kasteel (castle) Het Nijenhuis’ in Heino/Wijhe.

Heino is only 10 minutes by train from Zwolle. From the railway station it takes a 15 to 20 minutes (through the woods) walk to get to the castle.

 

At this moment (until March 14th 2010) there is an exhibition of a known Dutch actor and painter, Jeroen KrabbĂ©. This exhibition of colourful paintings is called ‘Unknown Horizons’.

Unfortunately the website of the museum www.museumdefundatie.nl is only in Dutch.

Ja Tineke, inderdaad, dat is zij. Een hele kleurrijke vrouw. Ik vond die enorme portretten eerst nogal overweldigend, maar heb ook naar een korte film (waar zij geĂŻnterviewd wordt) gekeken en toen ging het ineens leven. Haar teksten zijn ook (confronterend) mooi!

Marte Röling, opmerkelijke vrouw. Rookte zij ook geen sigaren?
