Karel Appel 100

Karel Appel 100

Karel Appel 100 is a celebration of this unique artist in the fabulous Cobra Museum in Amstelveen. It brings together many of the most beautiful works by this artist 100 years after his birth in 1921 in Amsterdam. Some of the works are owned by the Cobra and others come from collections for this exhibition. These works by Karel Appel are from the period 1947-1961. In 2002, the museum purchased the 1951 work Women, children, animals at an auction for a record sum of $750,000. This is one of the most important works in its collection. Indeed Appel was the founder of the Cobra movement. A wonderful insight into this very famous Dutch artist. For more information about Karel Appel 100, see the Cobra Museum site.
