Blue Ocean Strategy

Adrie W. Verbeem, Bergen op Zoom, 2010
The Blue Ocean Strategy is known as a voyage of exploration into new possibilities and opportunities. Strategic value innovation. Klasema ART uses these criteria as a starting point and signpost in the experiencing of impressive works of art. Choosing art implies a careful genesis. The concepts of quality and beauty are central to that genesis.

The Klasema ART collection considers every aspect, thus creating a roadmap to art on your behalf. The environment in which top-class works are displayed is superb. A villa in the vernacular of Andrea Palladio set in the lush grounds of the Wouwse Estate.

In this museological setting you can forget your troubles and enjoy a marvellous collection of works from the Golden Age of abstract art. Geometric abstract, lyrical abstact, expressionist abstract and informal art. The Dutch schools ‘Vrij Beelden’ (1947-1950), ‘Creatie’ (1950-1954), ‘Liga Nieuwe Beelden’ (1955-1962) play an important role, as does the French ‘Nouvelle École de Paris’ (1945-1980).

A sample of the artists exhibited in random order:

  • Nicolas Warb
  • Willy Boers
  • Ferenc Gögös
  • Cesar Domela
  • André van der Vossen
  • Hans Ittmann
  • Youla Chapoval
  • Léon Zack

and ‘last but not least’, André Volten with fourteen important works.

About 52 years ago eight of these pieces, all dating from 1957, were sent to London in flat wooden boxes for exhibition and assessment by experts. They where not rediscovered until more than half a century later, and today they form an integral part of the Klasema ART collection.
