This exhibition is now closed

Gerritt van der Lingen has brought together an exhibition of works by artists of the Netherlands-based C.O.B.R.A. group. The group existed only from 1948 to 1951 but included some of Europe's most original artists, among them Karel Appel and Anton Rooskens. C.O.B.R.A. had loose affiliations with other European groups making it difficult to make a definite list of the group's membership. The small exhibition presented in the Print Room will consist of works on paper borrowed from other institutions, private collections and will include a work by Anton Rooskens presented by Mr Julian Boers, a Dutch art teacher, following a visit to New Zealand.
