STIFF AND STOUT – THE PATH OF JO KOSTER AND DORA KOCH-STETTER
That the Dutch Jo Koster and the German Dora Stetter both have been connected to a variety of European Artists’ Colonies, is clearly expressed in their work. In a beautiful survey of – inter alia – in Domburg, Staphorst, Heeze, Knokke en Ahrenshoop created paintings and graphic works, the similarities and differences between them are shown. With Jo Koster’s work as a guideline, the Summer Exhibition 2022 of the MTVP Museum Domburg follows the development of two female artists, who started traditionally but then unfolded their talents, one particularly in the French neo-impressionist and the other one mainly in the German expressionist sense. Stiffly persevering and stoutly digesting, or: their path was stiff, but the women were stout!
