About landscape art project "De Nollen"

About "Reis naar het oneindige" ("Journey to infinity") at the Stedelijk museum Alkmaar
The exhibition "Reis naar het oneindige" shows Rudi van de Wint's work from the conceptual to the more mystical works where infinity of light and the Cosmic is captured in his imiges. It shows also maquette for his sculptures and hundreds of paintings for the House of Representatives and the painted ceilings at the Royal Palace in The Hague.
