Bas Peeperkorn – Hand
|Publisher||Lecturis / Saiid/smale|
In the time of the guilds in the Golden Age, painters were asked to paint their own hand to test their skill. After that, hands proved to be a stumbling block for many painters; they are difficult to paint and are often hidden or omitted in paintings. And that’s strange, because hands can tell more than a facial expression. This book is a selection of over 300 hands painted by Bas Peeperkorn. As a diary, he paints his own hand every day. Guided by his mood or current events, his hand tells the story of the day. One day raw and expressive in heavy strokes and bright colors, the next day soft and transparent as water.
