In All Weathers explores how extreme weather has been depicted in art and poetry over the past four centuries. Guest curator of the exhibition is Dr. Boudewijn Bakker, former head curator at Amsterdam City Archives, who specialises in landscapes in Dutch visual art.

Bakker has curated a beautiful exhibition that features more than a hundred surprising and exciting artworks by Dutch artists from the last four centuries, with a particular focus on the period 1880-1940. It includes work by Vincent van Gogh, Piet Mondrian, G.H. Breitner, Jacob van Ruisdael, Hendrick Avercamp, J.H. Weissenbruch, Jan Sluijters, M.C. Escher and Carel Willink.

The exhibition also includes poetry from 'Weer & Wind – 100 gedichten en 100 gezichten' (‘In All Weathers – 100 Poems and 100 Faces’, available in Dutch only), compiled by Nicolaas Matsier, Helmi Goudswaard and Boudewijn Bakker, and published by THOTH Publishing.

 

 

Accompanying the exhibition is a presentation by weather man Peter Kuipers Munneke and artist Suzette Bousema.

Painters of the high clouded skies what does that blue mean, the grey that you use to paint your dreams?
