Kees Koomen @ De Aanschouw

Overschilderschilderij Painting 141

'The Overschilderschilderij' (oil paint, 50 cm x 60 cm, 2002-present) Since May 24 2002, artist Daan den Houter has invited art painters to make an oil painting on the same canvas. Each painting is shown for 1 week in the smallest gallery from Rotterdam: De Aanschouw (Witte de Withstraat 80b, Rotterdam). Then the canvas goes to the next painter for a new layer. In 2012 this work was nominated for the Royal Dutch Painters Award. In 2014 it hung in honor of the 100th layer, in a solo presentation in the Boijmans van Beuningen museum.
