‘Galerie Krikhaar 1963-1988’
text: Helena Stork
Dutch (with English summary)
1999, Waanders, Zwolle, the Netherlands
192 pages

Amsterdam in de jaren zestig. Het Spui met het Lieverdje. Schuin daar tegenover begon de eigenwijze tukker Herman Krikhaar zijn galerie. Een galerie waar geen opening voorbij ging zonder dat ‘tout le monde’ er geweest was: Max Heymans, Jacobine en Alexander Orlow, Cees Nooteboom, Mies Bouwman, Jan des Bouvrie, Paul Huf, Toon Hermans en Jan Vrijman.
Minstens zo divers waren de kunstenaars die er exposeerden: de CoBrA schilders, Antonio Saaura, Anton Heyboer, Paul de Lussanet, Richard Smeets, Kees Verwey, Marc Chagall, Picasso en vele andere. Een kaleidoscopisch tijdsbeeld van de 25 jaar waarin ‘krik’ de aandacht op zijn galerie gevestigd wist te houden.

‘Herman Krikhaar, Works on Paper’ follows the publication fifteen years ago of ‘Herman Krikhaar, paintings tableaux’. This books surveys the years when Herman Krikhaar worked on canvas and paper with enormous energy and concentration. The emphasis is on the works on paper, which are made as independent artworks, sometimes serving as studies for paintings. The material – various sorts of paper, wallpaper, or carton etc. – stimulates experimentation and forms an inspiring underground for his endless stream of ideas. In Amsterdam as well as in the South of France he created hundreds of works on paper, which can be read as a journal of impressive, sad, funny and fantasy moments. Striking is the incredible power and vitality that radiates from the work.
