140. Willem Hussem

Willem Hussem
Untitled (1958)
Signed and dated '58 on the reverse
Oil on cardboard, 55.6 x 47.9 cm
Private collection, the Netherlands
In the 1950s, Hussem started creating works that appeared to emanate calligraphic characters, and in the late 1950s, more geometric influences could be seen. A constant aspiration towards simplicity and purity underlies not only this lot on offer, but Hussem's entire oeuvre. Hey once said: “I spent a lifetime trying to make my job so simple. I have to conquer that simplicity over and over again.”
