About Peter de Rijcke:

peterderijcke24mei2009zaankleinwebPeter de Rijcke (1945) studied during the second half of the 1960s at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, and besides followed a year of figure drawing at the State Academy of Fine Arts. He resides in the historic harbour town of Hoorn since 1972, and over the years has developed a singular style in painting landscape, city and harbour scenes, and portraits. In preparation of his work Peter de Rijcke sometimes uses the possibilities offered by digital photography and the computer, but he also works from nature. Ultimately, for him, the essence of painting and drawing lies in the classic process of craftsmanship of seeing, interpreting and executing manually. The mediums he applies are oils or acrylics on canvas, watercolour and gouache. His favourite painting haunts are the harbour areas of Amsterdam and Hoorn, the banks of the river Amstel, the coasts of the IJsselmeer, the Wadden Sea and Normandy. In 2010 he spent three weeks working in situ with Chinese artists in de vicinity of Shanghai.

In 1969 he debuted in Galerie Sergej in Amsterdam and has since exhibited widely in the Netherlands and abroad. His work was showed in the C.J. Tung Maritime Museum in Shanghai and the Jiangnan Museum of Art in Wuxi (China); in the Snug Harbor Cultural Center, NYC and the Mystic Maritime Gallery (USA); the Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven (Germany); the marine museums of Amsterdam and Rotterdam, Pulchri Studio in The Hague, the Northern Shipping Museum in Groningen and the Westfries Museum in Hoorn.

Introduction: Anna Pavlova

New at Dutch Accent gallery: Typical Amsterdam cityscapes by Anna Pavlova.

About Anna:

Anna Pavlova (1976) was born in an artistic family. Since her childhood, art has been an important factor in her life. From getting inspired by seeing it in musea and art books to making her own paintings. It was clear what she wanted to do in the future. Painting!

She graduated from the art academy in Moscow. Later she moved to Amsterdam. For Anna, painting is not really about the subject. It is about expressing her feelings on the canvas. Mixing colors, play with the light, the inspiration of a location. These are all important tools for putting emotion in a painting.

Amsterdam is a very pittoresk town. It is full of details and you never stop discovering. That is why Amsterdam is her favorite subject at the moment.
