Description
Adriana - Aan de Amsterdamse grachten
Gouache - Hand signed - 1970

Beautiful gouache, very detailed. On the back it reads: Galerie nn 20. This was probably gallery 20 in Amsterdam.
Felix Valk (1929-1999) was founder of gallery 20 in Arnhem, (1960-1969, Parkstraat 20) and in Amsterdam (1965-1973, Keizersgracht 518 and Willemsparkweg 35). Gallery 20 was a leader of new visual arts in those days. From 1970 onwards, the Lijnbaancentrum in Rotterdam grew under Valk’s leadership to a nationally known phenomenon. Between 1981 and 1987 Felix Valk was director of the Museum of Land and Ethnology, also in Rotterdam. He then returned to Arnhem and started gallery 20 x 2, where he propagated contemporary, non-western art until his death.
