Charley Toorop

Farmer in the De Valk Inn, 1926

‘Would you mind posing for me?’, Charley Toorop asked a farmer in a pub in Zeeland. The farmer turned on his chair and posed casually. Toorop drew him quickly, using square conté crayons. She used the ends of the crayon to create the angular lines, and the length of the crayon to fill areas. At the ...time of making this somewhat Expressionistic drawing, Toorop’s summer studio was located in this pub’s storehouse. Text: Chris Reinewald From: Museum MORE: 100 jaar realisme, 2020, Gorssel
