Paintings, sculptures and lithographs by internationally collected Dutch artist Erik Renssen (b. 1960) are displayed in an elegant yet informal setting here. The gallery shows contemporary Renssen artworks alongside a high quality collection of Picasso linocuts, lithographs and pochoirs.
The tasteful combination of these two collections is presented in exquisite handmade and –gilded frames, each one unique and carefully selected to complement the artwork.
Erik Renssen is an established artist with a steadily growing group of international admirers and collectors. Although primarily a painter, Renssen also enjoys making limited edition lithographs, linocuts, original drawings and sculptures in bronze.
His fascination for the work of Pablo Picasso has resulted in a meticulous study of the great master’s oeuvre. He has internalized Picasso’s visual language and uses it to paint his own personal stories. Renssen's blonde women are not Marie-Thérèse - Picasso’s famous muze - but rather the women in his own life. Paris becomes Amsterdam, The Notre Dame becomes the Rijksmuseum, and the coffee pot he paints might be the one that was across the table from him at breakfast..
Besides our gallery in Amsterdam, our collection is internationally represented by Guarisco Galleries in Washington and Thao Le in Singapore. Also we yearly exhibit at Red Dot Art Fair in Miami; Spectrum Indian Wells Art Show in Palm Springs and at Art Expo in New York.
All Renssen paintings come in a custom, handmade frame made by master frame maker Guy Sainthill · All prices include the frame · We are happy to make alternative framing suggestions · Please contact us for the unframed price · All prices include shipment.
