verwey and steijn – shared studio
Jan 19 – May 20, 2024
Painter and watercolorist Kees Verwey (1900 – 1995) hardly needs an introduction. The famous HaarlemThis artist was taught by Henri Boot. Boot had several students, including Wim Steijn (1914 – 1980). Boot taught at home and it was considered a great honor to be taught by him. Verwey and Steijn must have met in his studio. Although much younger than Verwey, Wim Steijn also worked for several years in Verwey's studio at the Spaarne and his relationship with Verwey was friendly.
The exhibition Shared studio shows works by Kees Verwey next to Wim Steijn and discusses the similarities and differences in their work.
