Mark Smit Fine Art is situated at the banks of the Overijsselse Vecht-river, in the former town hall of Ommen. Over 150 paintings are on display, in a warm ambiance. We specialize in 19th and 20th century paintings. Our collection of paintings from the period of 1820-1970 is one of the largest and most varied in the Netherlands. The 19th century is well-represented, comprising almost every great name in the Romantic School, the Hague School and the Amsterdam Impressionists. For the 20th century paintings, emphasis lies on the ‘classical moderns’: the Luminists, the artists from the Bergen School and the Groninger Ploeg (The Plough) are well represented.
Come in and enjoy our collection!More information about Mark Smit Fine Art »

Although you have to undergo his abstract paintings without naming exactly what you see or experience, our first asscociations might be right.
For example, Robert Zandvliet called the series of works with flowing color bands his “highway series”, in which you can see the road pattern from above.
In his non-figurative work, Robert Zandvliet realizes an almost Willem de Kooning-like spatiality. However, it never becomes completely abstract, there is always a link to the figurtive.
