Museum MORE presents the first major overview exhibition about the painter/sculptor Rein Draijer (1899-1986) in 35 years. Art critics equate this unique, typical Dutch artist with Saenredam and Mondrian. In 1952 and 1968, Draijer received the Jacob Maris price and represented the Netherlands at the Venice Biennial – but the general public mainly knows Draijer for his post stamp designs. The exhibition is an ode to an artist who wanted to bring back reality to its pure essence.
From the oeuvre of Rein Draijer, 65 paintings, 15 sculptures, 20 post stamp designs and dozens of drawings and personal documents are presented.
