Marijn Van Kreij - Nude In The Studio
In the summer of 1955, Picasso moved his studio to early 20th century villa ‘La Californie’ near Cannes. The large Jugendstil windows and the view on a garden with cactuses, eucalyptus, and palm trees found their way into Picasso’s paintings. Picasso called them "interior landscapes". In the past years, Marijn van Kreij has worked on a series of drawings and paintings modeled after Picasso’s interior landscapes, focusing on the act of drawing and painting through repetition and variation. This ring bound postcard book published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Nude in the Studio’ at Marres in Maastricht offers a lively cross section of these series in vivid colours.
