Tulips from Amsterdam
A field of brilliant orange tulips bloomed for  guests at the launch of the new exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW entitled ‘Intensely Dutch.’


The ever enthusiastic director of the gallery, Edmund Capon, reached new heights of excitement wtih  his welcoming speech as he enthused over these works of Dutch artists rarely seen outside of Europe.  Edmund’s signature humour was in full flow as he referred to the four *Vermeers in the gallery’s collection,  adding that “he would be grateful if guests could leave one behind when they departed”.

Charmaine Ford, a young virtuoso pianist and composer ‘wowed’ the arty and ‘others’ throng with her amazing key board skills.
 
This collection of Dutch  abstract work, which presents the art of fifteen of the most important Dutch artists of the post-war period is certain to stimulate many differing views and responses.

The featured Dutch artists have been described as painting with ‘a new freedom from a vital source’ – what an energetic flagger to entice a visit to see the collection.
