Profile

 

De Rijk Fine Art Noordeinde 95 in Den Haag, has been specialising in
concrete art and art concerning the ZERO/NUL movement.

The ZERO movement was founded in 1958 by Mack and Piene.
Later, a.o. , Uecker, Fontana, Yves Klein, Megert,
Aubertin, Goepfert, von Graevenitz, Morellet, Manzoni, Luther,
Castellani, Verheijen, Colombo, Leblanc, Pohl, Kusama, Tinguely,
Bartels, Holweck, Spindel, Bury, Dadamaino, Dorazio, Mavignier,
Spoerri, Soto and Salentin joined the movement.

Parallel to ZERO, in 1960 the NUL movement emerged in the Netherlands .
It was an initiative of Henk Peeters who was joined soon thereafter by
Armando and Henderikse. Initially, herman de vries also participated.
The NUL-group ended in 1964 and the ZERO-group in 1966.

The features of NUL-ZERO are light, movement and monochrome
painting. To play with light and shadow, the artists made
use of nails, reliefs and ribbed surfaces.
There is no boundary between painting and sculpture anymore.

They sought a new harmony between man and nature,
and avoided in their art the individual tracks.

In recent years this movement / art has been rediscovered and has received great
interest, both nationally and internationally. Perhaps this is also caused by
the hectic time we live in and people search for peace, harmony and
fascination.
In november 2011, this art can also be found on the PAN Amsterdam, Netherlands.

What else does De Rijk Fine Art do.

We buy works from private collections and advise and guide
the sale of collections. For this we have contacts inside and outside
the Netherlands with a very reliable group of peers.

We also advise on restoration of sculptures, paintings and works
on paper. Over the years we have got acquainted with a number of specialists
in this field. Complicated restorations were , sometimes in a team,
very successfully implemented.
These specialists also work on important museum collections.

We welcome you to the beautiful Noordeinde where we will of course
be able to show much more work than shown on our site.
