Hi there, glad you’re joining me again for part two of my visit to the Summer Expo (zomerexpo) in Gemeentemuseum The Hague. This time, I’ll be looking at photography and painting.

Missed part 1? Find it: here.

Zomerexpo-2014_Mouseblossom_Barbara-van-Marle

The Gemeentemuseum is worth a visit for the building alone, which was designed by Berlage. I love it so much… Look at this hallway, where the smaller pieces were exhibited. Like this tiny acrylic on paper on driftwood aptly named Mini by Barbara van Marle.

 

Zomerexpo-2014_Mouseblossom_Dolf-Walter

And now for some photography. This work by Dolf Walter, called Portrait of a young girl was beautifully placed against a dark background. It’s really stunning.

 

Zomerexpo-2014_Mouseblossom_Anita-Edridge

Another dark piece (yes, that’s just me): Near the end by Anita Edridge.

Of course there is So. Much. More! to see, so if you can go and see the exhibition for yourself. You can still visit the Summer Expo until August 31. Find out more: here.

Do let me know if you have, or if you enjoyed my little selection of art from the exhibition.
