Jan Beutener
at Gorssel

Museum MORE in Gorssel pays tribute to Jan Beutener's oeuvre (1932) with more than 70 paintings. Beutener is an explorer of things. From details that he gives a unique charge, from evocative but always clear cut-outs or enlargements. With a sense of absurdism. And for humor mixed with melancholy. Only Beutener can opt for a pair of bony knees protruding against a windshield or a tissue hidden in the seam of an armchair. The detail that strikes him is central to his realism. A look back at 50 years of artistry.
