Alle Jong exhibits at Drents Museum

The solo exhibition “Mijne Kinderlijke Traanen” – Installations and drawings – shows the work of Alle Jong, at Kink in the Drents Museum, from 24 September 2019 to 5 January 2020

In this mysterious, remarkable space, Alle Jong brings together 17th, 18th and 19th century prints of historical representations or mythological scenes. Following his passion for collecting old artefacts, documents, engravings or etches he brings back to life and into the present old subjects and characters such as Theo van Gogh’s wife.

Anna Dirks-Veth 260x160cm – authentic painting by Jan Veth of his wife Anna (ca. 1880-1900), who was an good friend of Jo Bonger, wife of Theo Van Gogh. Anna insisted Johanna Bonger moved to Bussum after Van Gogh died. From there Johanna could start promoting the hundreds of works by Van Gogh. In this artwork the painting by Veth is integrated within an large contemporary charcoal drawing Cartouche.
