GERRIT VAN HOUTEN STUDIO AWARD
The Gerrit van Houten Studio Award is a new award introduced by the Gerrit van Houten Foundation in cooperation with the Dooyewaard Foundation Blaricum.
The Gerrit van Houten Foundation is named after painter and draughtsman Gerrit van Houten (1866-1934). Although only an active artist in his youth, he has left a prolific and remarkable oeuvre. The foundation manages his artistic heritage and with this award aims to pay homage to van Houten by stimulating work in a figurative style where perceptible reality is observed.
The first winner of the Gerrit van Houten Studio Award was announced in March 2015. Artist Stijn Rietman has the use of the De Gors Studio at the Angerechtsweg in Blaricum until 2018.
