Every year we organize at least one new exhibition. For this we draw on our own collection and we cooperate with other organizations and artists.
Exhibition until October 31.
Jo Koster, Jan Sluijter and Stien Eelsingh – “They came, saw and painted Staphorst”.
Museum Staphorst presents you a unique exhibition of artworks painted by Jo Koster, Jan Sluijters and Stien Eelsingh. At the beginning of the last century these three artists stayed in Staphorst for a shorter or longer period. They were fascinated by the colorful village, the hard and simple life of the inhabitants, but also by the solidarity in the community. It inspired the artists to create colorful, realistic works. But also sober, gloomy works, full of melancholy; stylized, expressionist deformations.
The focus of the exhibited paintings is on the Staphorst woman and her daily environment. There are 24 well-known and lesser known works of art from museums and private collections.
