Le Cauchemar & Horreur (after Constant)

Constant Anton Nieuwenhuys (21 July 1920 – 1 August 2005), better known as Constant, was a member of the post-WWII COBRA art group, located in Copenhagen, Brussels, and Amsterdam.  During my most recent visit to Amsterdam, I copied several of Constant’s works while visiting the local COBRA gallery in Amstelveen, located a short train ride South of the city. IMO, it is well worth the side-trip to see this interesting collection of colourful works by Asger Jorn, Karel Appel, Constant and other COBRA artists.

  1. Thanks for the “heads up” – will make a point next time we’re over-seas. If you happen to be in Vancouver in the next while – The Museum of Anthropology at UBC has an amazing exhibit of contemporary Afro-Cuban art. It runs until early November 🙂
