From the shadow of history, in the light of today.
Some artists disappear in the shadow of history after their death, others are later lifted and rediscovered in the light of current events. The latter is the case with the Hague artists, Jan Goeting, Catharina Goeting-Stultiëns and their son Joep Goeting.
Shortly after each other died in the eighties. In 1986 was the last major exhibition in Pulchri Studio in The Hague. In 2015, a restored artwork was opened at the Elandplein in The Hague.
TripleAProjects organizes Exhibition ‘The Hague art family’
TripleAProjects organizes in cooperation with the heirs of the Goeting family (Goeting Art) the exhibition ‘The Painters family Goeting’. On Friday 8 December 2017, the Wassenaar Alderman for Culture, Inge Zweerts de Jong, will open the exhibition ‘The Painters family Goeting’ at the Raadhuis De Paauw in Wassenaar. Mariëtte Josephus Jitta, former curator of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, will give an explanation of the importance of the three artists.
The exhibition includes paintings, watercolours, ceramics and tapestries from the three artists. If you are interested, the artworks are also offered for sale.
Jan Goeting (1918-1984), who is counted among the New Hague School, was a lecturer at the Vrije Academie and De Koninklijke Academie. He exhibited in the heyday of artist society Pulchri Studio. As an artist, he made countless facing bricks, monumental ceramic objects and mosaics, both in The Hague (current ANWB building) and Wassenaar and beyond. He was also known as a portrait painter and portrayed many prominent people and artists, such as Princess Beatrix and Princess Christina (for the national gift to Queen Juliana in 1976), Victorine Hefting and Annet Nieuwenhuizen. Exhibits of his work took place in many European countries, the Middle East and in the United States. In 2015 a work of art was relocated on the Elandplein in The Hague.
Catharina Goeting-Stultiëns (1912-1987), followed the Royal Academy in The Hague and was a member of the Hague art circle and Pulchri Studio. Her techniques consisted of the use of oil paint, graphics, watercolour, mixed technique, pastel and tapestries. She received many monumental assignments, such as tapestries in the Provinciehuis in Middelburg (1960), in the wedding room of the City Hall in Vlissingen and in the Lyceum in Zeist.
Joep Goeting (1946-1986) studied at the Academy for Visual Arts in Arnhem and Rijksacademie voor Beeldende Kunst in Amsterdam. His techniques include painting, watercolours, gouaches, mixed technique and ceramics. His first exhibition took place in 1972 at Ina Broerse, Galerie Gamma in Amsterdam. In 1974 he received a Stipendium from the Ministry of CRM. Other exhibitions took place at the Institut Neerlandais Paris 1973 and in Nagoya (Japan), Cologne and New York. His work is in the Haags Gemeentemuseum and the Museum in Los Angeles.
