Art on Paper Amsterdam

At Art on Paper Amsterdam, selected galleries concentrate on work on or made with paper by their artists. The fair takes place in the industrial-monumental Gashouder at the Westergas.

Work on or made with paper, whether it be pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor, gouache or collage, often shows the artist in the most spontaneous and artistically free moment. The directness that is connected with this medium brings artist and viewer closer together. In their intimacy and vulnerability, works on or made with paper thrive well with the exclusive attention they receive at a specialized art fair.

Not only does work on or made with paper have a special character from an artistic point of view, it is often accessible and attractive in terms of format and price. Beginning art lovers might be doing one of their first art purchases here.

Exhibition collection armando

At Art on Paper Amsterdam 2023, the Chabot Museum in Rotterdam organized an elaborate exhibition of Armando’s extensive collection of works on paper. Armando (1929 – 2018) was a man of many talents. He was a visual artist, poet, theater maker and violinist. During his lifetime he collected 400 works by 121 fellow artists, often as an anonymous buyer. Many did not know that Armando had bought their work. In 2014 he donated his private collection to the Chabot Museum in Rotterdam, which curated the exhibition “Ik voel me hier gewoon thuis” (“I just feel at home here”) from September 19, 2019 to March 7, 2020 from those works.
