Anne's Daily Encounters

Dutch Masters on the wall

The first days of the week are going to be my regulars as guarding grandma and before doing so I had the chance to roam a little thro' the city in search of the murals of some great artists; De Strakke Hand, what's like "the Focussed Hands".
Here a work on an eleven stories flatlets In Utrecht realised by that team of painters; it's a repro of Abraham Bloemaert's Fluteplayer, from 1621.
It's the third painting in their project "Utrecht's Caravaggists" 17th C painters from Utrecht who were inspired by the magnificant chiaroscuro works of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio and today's painters collective has a cooperation with the Central Museum in Utrecht "to bring the paintings from the museum to the walls in town"

Eleven stories high, that makes this the largest mural of Utrecht for sure.
