Hans Kanters (Amsterdam 1947) The Light of the Wise Signed lower left Oil on board, 42.8 x 53.8 cm Provenance: Acquired directly from the artist by the present owner Literature: W. van der Beek, Hans Kanters Hans Kanters 2012, p. 26 Note: Dutch self-taught artist Hans Kanters who gained success with his painted fantasies in the early 1970s, has been performing with his 'Surrealist theatre' for over fifty years. Unhindered by fashion, traditions or dogmas, Kanters immediately took his own path. This has not made Kanters an outsider in Dutch art history. According to himself, he is indebted to the artists Carel Willink (1900-1983), Salvadori Dalí (1904-1989) and Max Ernst (1891-1976). Dream landscapes, visions and delusions: scenes that are hard to believe, though somehow plausible are the core of the artist's oeuvre. The metamorphosis is endless: people become animals, animals become objects and objects become people again. This is only confirmed Kanters' motto: “the artist celebrates freedom”.
