The Gemeentemuseum exhibits works from the decade around 1970. In 1969 Rajlich (1940) came to Germany and then to the Netherlands from his native Czechoslovakia and he lived for some forty years in The Hague before returning to the Czech Republic.

Extensions of Ziekenhuis Leyenburg (Leyenburg Hospital) as seen from Florence Nightingaleweg, from the southeast.

Since the commercialisation of the health services in the 1990s it is officially called HagaZiekenhuis (HagaHospital, with this quite stupid capital in the middle of the word) locatie Leyweg (Leyweg location).

0020-florence-nightingaleweg

Of course nobody knows what you mean if you mention that name, but everybody knows Leyenburg Hospital.

0021-florence-nightingaleweg

The original hospital (the light grey concrete buildings in the pictures) was designed by architect Karel Sijmons (1908-1989) and was opened in 1972.

The new buildings you see on these pictures are extensions for a children’s hospital, a births centre and an operation theatre building which were all designed by MVSA architects.

Ramakers showed some of his works of the last few decades, while presently there is still an exhibition of Rajlich’s early works at the Gemeentemuseum here in The Hague.
