As well as managing and exhibiting its own world-famous collection of drawings and prints, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen regularly shows exceptional collections of drawings. From 5 September the museum presented a selection of more than a hundred works by the artist Rinus van den Bosch (1938–1996).
He left a varied oeuvre which includes both drawings and paintings. A large part of Rinus van den Bosch’s oeuvre remains in his studio to this day. This exhibition, based for the most part on a selection of drawings from the artist’s studio, highlights his great qualities.
The new biographic essay ‘Flarden van een stem: Rinus van den Bosch (1938 - 1996)’ by Willem Otterspeer and the publication ‘Rinus’ with contributions by Peter Struycken, Dick Matena and Wim Beeren (both in Dutch only), was on sale in the museum shop from 19 September. The 1987 publication ‘Eidènai’ (the knowledge that comes about through seeing) which Rinus van den Bosch compiled from more than 360 drawings could also be purchased there, as well as his composition 'Regenlicht'.
Dutch authors Tommy Wieringa, Willem Otterspeer and A.L. Snijders officially opened the exhibition in the Auditorium on Saturday 19 September.
