When arriving back from Spain, I had planned to go to this exhibition. Like so many this year, Covid made sure nobody would ever see it. What a pity. In the same line, an exhibition about the work of Stephan Vanfleteren in the Scheepvaartmuseum in Amsterdam.  https://pf.nl/martien-coppens-in-het-noordbrabants-museum/
