Charlotte van Pallandt
(Arnhem 1898 – Noordwijk 1997)
Granite, H. 26.2 cm
Acquired by the family of the present owner from the estate of Theo Swagemakers
The work is a portrait of Elly Swagemakers-Haaksma, the wife of her friend and fellow artist Theo Swagemakers.
Van Pallandt: “I mainly work with figures and portrait. For me it’s about the form, how to realise a beautifully tense form in order to obtian a strong expression, that somewhat comes close to what I feel. It’s a three-dimensional composition, volumes are closely connected.”
