The work of Dutch landscape photographer Saskia Boelsums is inspired by the rich painting tradition of the Old Masters.
On the Shoulders of the Old Masters
Flemish and Dutch masters are universally recognised as masters of light, colour and detail. Their work continues to inspire artists today. Not only painters and photographers owe a debt to the Old Masters; their influence is also visible in the work done by a theatre director and a landscape architect.
Masterpieces by Rembrandt and Van Eyck have helped photographer Hendrik Kerstens blur the line between the painter’s art and photography.
Playwright and director Lisaboa Houbrechts has written a kaleidoscopic theatre piece of Pieter Bruegel the Elder and the era in which he created Mad Meg.
The Dutch photographer Bas Meeuws is continuing the tradition of Golden Age floral still lifes.
