Charles Donker Dutch

Not on view

Charles Donker is one of the foremost contemporary Dutch printmakers. He is a member of a group called De Luis (The Louse), a group of graphic artists who since the 60s have been making works in a surrealist or heightened realist idiom. He has long been fascinated by nature and the countryside. Here he depicted the Ginkelse Heide or Ginkel Heath near the town of Ede. The heath was an important World War II landing site for battles that took place in September 1944. In this peaceful representation, Donker rendered the rhythmic stillness of the Dutch landscape with a delicate touch.
