Piet Killaars 100 years

11 February 2023 until 21 January 2024

Exhibition

This activity has ended.

Overview of sculptures and pre-studies from the own collection. Piet Killaars (1922 - 2015) was a very talented sculptor. He became famous for many statues throughout the Netherlands. Part of the pre-studies on view were gifted by his heirs, with the earliest work dating back to 1955.

Growth

Together, the works in Piet Killaars 100 years give the impression of a talented and driven sculptor, who uses nature as his inspiration to add a spiritual dimension to his work. His visual language is recognizable by his abstract and symbolic representation of the progress of growth, exuding both power and fragility.

Pre-studies

Even in his later works, one can still see Killaars drawing inspiration from nature. The Dutch public is mostly familiar with his monumental sculptures in public spaces. The display cabinet in the exhibition allows the viewer a peek behind the scenes: it shows many of the pre-studies Piet Killaars made for his larger sculptures.
