Catalogue Note

For years Hans Broek meticulously painted the Los Angeles landscape, but in recent years his art has taken a new direction. His latest endeavour relates to a large extent upon yet other traditional genres, that of portraits and history painting. Broek is dedicating himself to studying the oeuvre of Old Masters and emblematic images taken from our contemporary visual culture.  His new approach not only includes references to the visual culture
of the Roman Empire, the Renaissance and the seventeenth century, but also to contemporary popular imagery. His early work (before 1994) was figurative, but with more expressive brushwork and a rougher surface. Between 1995-2005, there was a gradual reduction of formal means. His new work displays a different sensibility akin to a
fin-de-siècle style.

Hans Broek was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 1991-1993.
He won the Koninklijke Subsidie voor Vrije
Schilderkunst (NL) in 1992 and the Uriôt Prize (NL) in 1993.
