Dora Tuynman

Dutch artist Dora Tuynman (1926-1979) left for Paris in 1951 after she had been rejected by the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam. In Paris, she participated fully in the life at Rue Santeuil, where Appel, Corneille and other Cobra artists also had their studios. She abandoned her understated style and in stead made colourful, abstract works with exuberant use of paint. This development culminated in the 1960s in powerful abstract expressionist works.
