Joost Baljeu was an influencial Dutch artist who worked in many diciplines. His work can be seen as a continuation of ‘De Stijl’, the aestetic movement that was founded at the beginning of the 20th century by artists like Mondriaan and Van der Leck. In the 1950’s he started to make wall-reliefs, first he made small ones as a sort of prototype for larger versions which he executed later-on. During his lifetime he didn’t sold these small ‘babies’ as he called them.

The work here on offer is one of these early ‘Babies’. He later on made a larger version in commision of museum Boijmans van Beuningen. who purchased it in 1966.
