For the first time Dutch painter Robert Zandvliet presents a selection of drawings and sketches made as studies for his paintings. Besides numerous drawings, the book also offers a selection of paintings from recent decades, as well as a new series, 'Seven Stones'. The drawings and older works give a clear indication of the path Zandvliet has followed since the 1990s in his search for pure form and composition through an uncompromising approach to his work. With 'Seven Stones', Zandvliet ventures into new territory where not only does he attempt to produce good paintings, but he also tries to fathom why specific forms have such a great impact on him personally. With an introduction by Rudi Fuchs.
