19,7* 25,8 inch (50*65,5 cm)Carel Visser studied architecture and the Royal Academy in The Hague where he taught from 1958 to 1962. Later, from 1966 to 1998, Visser taught at the Ateliers '63 in Haarlem. Carel Visser is seen as one of the most important Dutch constructivists and he had a major influence and decisive role on sculpture after the Second World War. Visser's first images are expressionistic in nature, followed by a period in which he carried out abstraction in mathematical constructions. Besides sculpture, he also makes graphic work like this rose. In the 1980s Visser started to use other materials, such as feathers, shells, wool, sand, rope, wood, etc. He had presentations at the Venice Biennale, Musee Rodin, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and the Sprengel Museum in Hanover.
