Project Belgian Refugees in the Netherlands 1914-1918
Alfred Ost, Refugees, 1914, ink on paper, 310x430 mm
The project ‘Belgian Refugees in the Netherlands 1914-1918’ has been conceived by the RKD as the means of building a comprehensive inventory of Belgian artists who settled in the Netherlands as refugees. Each artist will be represented with at least one distinctive work in RKDimages. These can be seen by using our online RKDimages database and entering project Belgische vluchtelingen in Nederland in the ‘project’ box. In addition, there will be an extensive article focusing on the artistic and social context, mutual contacts between Dutch and Belgian artists, and the effects the exile had on the life and work of individual artists.
