Landscape Watchers; Nouvelles Images, The Hague

Jan van der Pol

After the sad loss of Erik Bos last winter Nouvelles Images gallery has a new manager.

Marie Jeanne de Rooij has the ambitious task to give both continuity and new impulses to this oldest of Dutch galleries.

Jan van der Pol

Her first exhibition shows works by four artists.

L.J.A.D. Creyghton

It is remarkable that she didn’t choose to organize a big group show to close the ranks.

She clearly chose to close the ranks more aesthetically and substantively.

Auke de Vries

Her experience with big spaces obviously helped her in this big gallery, making one big show loosely based on one idea: landscape.

Jan van der Pol (1949), combining in his paintings landscapes-as-found-footage from different sources, gives an idea of present day painted reality.

There are some fine drawings by Van der Pol on show as well.

L.J.A.D. Creyghton (1954) photographed landscapes of the Western Front of World War I, roughly from the northern Ardennes to the southern Vosges.

He also photographed ‘souvenirs’ from these places.

Awoiska van der Molen

Using photography as a more or less spiritual medium his works connect well with works by invited artist Awoiska van der Molen (1972) who internalises landscapes with this still more or less miraculous medium.

The few small works by Auke de Vries (1937), one of the doyens of the gallery (who has a big exhibition in Museum Beelden aan Zee at the moment), show sculpture as part of an invisible landscape.

As a whole this fine and strongly reflective show underscores the space – or the different spaces – of the gallery itself.

It is the oldest gallery in the country so it is a venue with a history, which is more or less reflected by the present festive group show.
