Last week I received from Petra van Koppen the publication: Hans Waanders – selection of available works, published recently by Johan Deumens Gallery, Haarlem.
This publication describes and illustrates 34 books and prints from the estate of Hans Waanders (1951 – 2001)
Upon his demise in 2001 Hans Waanders left behind an oeuvre of inestimable value. His estate is a universe on its own, an admirable and miraculous attempt to appropriate the kinfishers' life. He published more than 200 books, many prints, countless stamps and multiples. It has been his wish to continue showing and offering his work to the world.
