the guilder

Project ‘the disappearance of the guilder’
For this project I have been given authorisation and collaboration from several banks. I regret that with the guilder a piece of Dutch culture disappears. This project is my way of saying farewell to the guilder. Although farewell?
Before I started painting I have been given much information from the Dutch bank. I was not only inspired by the designs and colour (the typical Dutch symbols and watermarks of our money), but also by the history.
For example on my painting ‘Money’ on which Rembrandt is represented (like on an older note of thousand). This image was of a self-portrait they thought! Later it appeared that this ‘self-portrait’ was a piece of work from one of his students. So for many years we have been paying with a ‘fake Rembrandt.’ On the background of ‘Money’ we see a male choir singing an ironical song concerning money. That is to say ‘Money’ from Pink Floyd. The male choir really sang this during a party from my daughter.
The main inspiration source remains our splendid coloured money with the symbols; The Snip (a one-hundred guilder note), the Lighthouse, the Sunflower, Spinoza etc...
