The Klasema ART abstract Modern Art collection covers a unique selection of prominent early European, North America and Russian Modernist artists, painters and sculptors. Driven by passion for beauty and quality, these (geometric) abstract Modern artworks have been carefully collected over the past forty years, with a special focus on abstract Modern artworks from the influential post-war period (1945–1976).
Painters and sculptors from the important Dutch abstract Modern art schools Vrij Beelden, Creatie and Liga Nieuwe Beelden, all founded between 1947 and 1962, are represented. So are influential abstract Modernist painters from the French Nouvelle École de Paris and Russian and North American abstract Modernist painters, all ‘connected’ to the Parisian developments on abstract Modern art after the second World War and beyond.
