Dozing Pillow, 1970

The Dutch title is, of course, a play on words (ingedut=dormant). It was not the striped pillow that dozed off, but rather the person who lay on it earlier. Human figures, however, never occur in Har Sanders’ work. Throughout his artistic career, he was fascinated by striped, rumpled pieces of cloth..., which he reproduced in razor-sharp detail, thereby defying abstraction. In 1972, the year in which this painting originated, Sanders cleverly decorated the theatre of the Speelhuis in Helmond as the interior of a circus tent.
