A Strong Dutch Influence?

The Dutch artists who came here, were influenced by the latest continental trends. Petrus van de Velden introduced landscapes, painted in a strongly expressionist style. Ans Westra created unique photo documentaries of Māori. Frank Carpay at Crown Lynn potteries was a good mate of Picasso's. Leon van den Eijkel introduced the country to Mondriaan. Doris de Pont made a mark on the fashion industry. Peter Deckers links our art jewellery into continental Europe and the art scene in the United States. 

There are more stories than we have room for, in Oranjehof... Like furniture design, house design with Lockwood Homes, graphic design, The list goes on...
