Showing in Amsterdam´s Wanrooij Gallery, situated right next to the famous Rijksmuseum with all its masterpieces, is like coming home to old friends.
Like many young painters – and especially those with a keen interest in portrait painting – I literally grew up with my heroes Rembrandt and Vermeer. Austria’s most important museum for Old Masters, the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, shows two brilliant self-portraits by Rembrandt and Vermeer’s “The Art of Painting” as well as a large number of excellent works by Rubens and van Dyck.
At the age of 17 I had my first chance to come to Amsterdam and visit the Rijksmuseum. By that time, however, I had already been studying the beloved Dutch and Flemish Masters in depth for almost four years.
