Young in Groningen: Art from the Period 1945-1975
Siep van den Berg, No title, Oil on canvas.
GRONINGER.- The Groninger Museum presents the exhibition entitled Jong in Groningen- Kunst uit de periode 1945-1975. This exhibition has been compiled by Henk van Os, former director of the Rijks Museum in Amsterdam, and focuses on post-war art in Groningen. The exhibition displays work by sixteen artists, of whom only five are still alive: Els Amman, Siep van den Berg, Jo van Dijk, Jan Hoving, Han Jansen, Marten Klompien, Ruloff Manuputty, Karl Pelgrom, Matthijs Röling, Coen Schilt, Martin Tissing, Edu Waskowsky, Fie Werkman, Olga Wiese, Drewes de Wit, and Henri de Wolf.

The abundance of interest in the painters of De Ploeg led to a situation in which the art of the generation of artists who were young just after WWII has remained underexposed. This exhibition gives a picture of the quality and diversity of young art in the period just after the war. Many people are familiar with Werkman’s printings, but few people know that his daughter Fie was also a fascinating artist.

In 1965 a spectacular exhibition was held, showing the work of Henri de Wolf, Martin Tissing, Jo van Dijk and Edu Waskowsky in the Groninger Museum. The artists arrived in a silver open-welded Citroen, from which an abstracted gas bubble arose. In Groningen, an avant-garde atmosphere predominated in those days. At the same time, Matthijs Röling gave a new impulse to the figurative tradition and painted genuinely splendid works. In those days there was so much going on in Groningen that is certainly worthwhile recalling.

The exhibition Jong in Groningen – kunst uit de periode 1945-1975 displays coherent groups of works by the artists mentioned. Only now is it evident just how varied art from that period was: from figurative to abstract, from ‘environment’ to land-art, and from minimalist to lyrical-abstract art. The exhibition includes drawings, sculptures, paintings and photography.
