Robert Bolt unpacks is the title of the exhibition of landscape paintings in the Klokhuis from 8 November 2020 to 15 January 2021.
When Robert (1931) was eight years old, he started drawing and painting in his attic room in The Hague and in the studio of his grandfather Louis Roessingh (Assen 1873 – Antwerp 1951) in the Zilversmidstraat in Antwerp. As a professional painter he put his grandson on the path of painting. He was advised that if he felt like painting, he should do it.
In addition to his job as a primary school teacher in the Netherlands, and afterwards in Sweden, Robert took lessons with many painters.
In recent years his interest has been in landscapes, portraits and a few abstracts. He is currently being taught by Wim Barends.
Forced by a move to sell his oeuvre, the artist has decided to make the exhibited works available to the enthusiast free of charge. Visitors are given the opportunity to make their choice and must collect the chosen work (one per person) on the last day of the exhibition. The only consideration that is required is a short written motivation for the choice.
