Cycled today to The Hague to visit the very nice exhibition of Escher in het paleis. Escher, a Dutch artist who studied in Delft for one week (in the 20s, if my mind serves me well) created some amazing drawings during his lifetime, something of a combination between surrealism and a hyperrealism.
Yesterday was quite an active day too, with a visit to a Shona sculpture exhibition almost in our backyard. Prices were in the same range as what I sell them for and after talking with some of their people, it’s clear that there definitely is something of a future in these things, if only you have access to the right people, the right market.
Afterwards, we went down to Hoek van Holland to watch the ships chugging down the Nieuwe Waterweg. The weather was fantastic and we could see the Keringhuis in the distance.
Early this week, when Betsy had taken two days off from work, we also visited the Dali exposition in the Boijmans van Beuningen museum.
Not a bad first week, eh?
