Can it also be beautiful?

The 20th century was a time of enormous artistic innovation when experimentation was the name of the game and art had new impetus. But not everyone was impressed by the urge for innovation with many artists remaining true to the ‘pure’ realism and impressionism of the late 19th century. In this exhibition, no matter what the style, beauty takes centre stage with paintings by artists such as Henri Boot, Coba Ritsema, Kees Verwey, Jacobus van Looy, and Jaap Ploos van Amstel.
