About the Artist
Mari Silverster Andriessen was a Dutch sculptor, best known for his work memorializing victims of the Holocaust. He went to the Haarlemse Kunstnijverheidschool and the Rijksacademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, and later the Academie van de Beeldende Kunsten in München. During the war, he had to join the Nazi ‘kulturkammer’, which he refused. After the war, he became the most asked artist for war- and war resistance monuments. He was a member of ‘de Groep’, of traditional, figurative sculptors, who took an important place in Dutch art after the war.
