Jean Thomassen Glenn Janes

Jean Thomassen Absurd realism

€ 40.00


In the early 1970s there was little interest in the unusual paintings of the Dutch artist Jean Thomassen. Some art critics were scathing intheir reviews. One wrote that he could `puke` after seeing Thomassen`s paintings; another suggested that `they had to be made by someone from an asylum, for no normal human being can have such sick fantasies`. But other more perceptive critics praised him as `a genius`. So, `genius` or `as mad as a hatter`? This is the question constantly provoked by Thomassen`s unusual and unpredictable paintings which form the subject of this book. The Foreword is by lne Veen, the former Dutch ballerina, actress and model who discovered Thomassen`s talents in 1973 and gave him the opportunity to develop into the now undisputed master of Absurd Realism. (Appropriately, it is a tiny 1.2 x 1.2 mm painting of her right eye that has earned Thomassen a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the creator of the world`s smallest oil painting). Thomassen- a winner of many international awards and author of 17 books- was knighted in 2009 for his contribution to Dutch art.
