Last week I went to visit Museum Kranenburgh at Bergen, Noord-Holland, Netherlands. I knew ‘Het Oude Hof’ was just around the corner, a place often portrayed by the artists of the ‘Bergense School’, a group of painters of, among others, Leo Gestel, Elsa Berg, Mommie Schwartz, Jaap Weijland, Jan Toorop and Jan Sluyters. After the stay at the museum I search for the Hof in the woods across the street and there it was. I decided to do the drawing rather impressionistically with rough hatched strokes, paying tribute to the expressionistic character of that artistic group of 100 years ago.
