No windmills, no van Gogh! 'A Touch of Dutch' - contemporary Dutch photography at Art Foyer Frankfurt

The Netherlands is a synonym for windmills, holidays in caravans, bicycle tours, clogs and legal dope. Of course, let's not forget about the great art of painters such as Hieronymous Bosch and Vincent Van Gogh.

The DZ Bank in Frankfurt is now putting the spotlight on another piece of cultural commodity: Dutch landscape and portrait photography from Anton Corbjin to Hellen van Meene. The exhibition ‘A Touch of Dutch’ is a surprising glimpse of contemporary photography.

To celebrate the Kulturtage der Europäischen Union (Culture Days of the European Union) the art foyer of the DZ bank gathered 50 pieces from art collections of Radobank, KPN, De Nederlansche Bank and the Huis Marseille Museum for photography and presents the most outstanding works of 14 famous Dutch artists.

Céline van Balen, Sebastiaan Bremer, Koos Breukel, Anton Corbijn, Rineke Dijkstra, Daan van Golden, Gert Jan Kocken, Jan Koster, Hellen van Meene, Pieter L. Mol, Awoiska van der Molen, Rob Nypels, Marijke van Warmerdam and Edwin Zwakman.

The collection features vivid close-ups, nocturnal, dreamlike observations as well as phantasmal panoramas. Some pictures balance on the fine line between portrait and landscape photography and make the genres flow into each other. The individual exhibits complement each other to create an exciting whole that is Dutch pictorial composition.
