CoBrA Museum

  Sandbergplein 1, Amstelveen ,   Zuid          (+31) 205 47 50 50     more than a year ago
Fantasy animals and weird creatures are just some of the subjects that CoBrA (an acronym for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam) artists used in their work. They drew their inspiration from a wide variety of sources including mythology, children’s drawings, folklore, ancient history, primitive art, Asian calligraphy and art by the mentally disabled. Although the movement was short lived (1948 - 1951) its prolific adherents left enough work in their wake to fill this beautifully designed museum. Painters, sculptors, poets, photographers and filmmakers were all drawn to CoBrA’s goals. They rebelled against the orthodoxy of the art academies and attempted to create art without borders. The museum features works by Holland's most famous CoBrA masters – Constant, Corneille and Karel Appel.
