#Dickinson25years –To mark #Dickinson’s 25th anniversary this year, we will be remembering some of the gallery’s past notable sales over the course of 2018. Today, in preparation for #Tefaf 2018, we remember Jan #Mostaert’s ‘Landscape with an episode from the Conquest of America or Discovery of America’, sold to the #Rijksmuseum at the fair in 2013. This painting is widely regarded as the earliest contemporary depiction of #America in Western Art. It is, therefore, of exceptional historical significance. It was first recognised as a work by the #Haarlem-born painter Jan Mostaert by #Friedländer and #Weiss, after the latter identified it in 1909 in a private collection in #Scheveningen. In addition to its art historical significance, this panel is historically important as one of approximately 1400 works appropriated by the Nazis from the #Amsterdam-based art dealer Jacques #Goudstikker during the Second World War. Goudstikker was a contemporary of #Duveen and was, like his English counterpart, the son of an #artdealer. He staged major exhibitions at his two galleries and displayed his holdings in #museum-like #installations, with paintings hung alongside furniture and decorative arts. He helped to guide the taste of J.W. Edwin vom Rath and Detlen Van Hadeln, both of whom willed their considerable collections to the Rijksmuseum, and he also advised Baron Heinrich #ThyssenBornemisza.

What if archaeologists from the future later excavate objects from our time?
Search your answer in FUTURARCHEOLOGY, an exhibition between future and past with Bi and Tridimensional works of Mustafa Sener (TR/NL), Susan Kooi (NL), Mariëlle van den Bergh (NL) en Mels Dees (NL), curated by Luca Rezzolla.
The show, presented by Stichting Breed Art, will be on display at Breed Art Studios, Het laagt 178 Amsterdam-Noord from 20 January till 10 March 2018:
Thu – Fri – Sat: 12:00 to 18:00 hours.
Mustafa Sener is an Amsterdam based artist with a Turkish background. His work is clearly inspired by the cradle of Eastern and Western culture.
Susan Kooi travels to Italy, Portugal and Japan to work with different traditions of ceramic crafts. She seeks proof of use and the meaning of the object, both real and fictional during its lifetime and in the future.
Mels Dees and Mariëlle van den Bergh share that interest and travel around the world. The experiences they gain from this are reflected in their work: sculptures, tapestries, photographs and paintings. Mariëlle is currently working as artist-in-residence at the EKWC, European Ceramic Workcentre in Oisterwijk.
