Lucebert exhibition in Alkmaar

Visual artist and poet Lucebert (1924-1994) lived and worked for a large part of his life in Bergen, a stone’s throw from Alkmaar. He left behind an extensive and versatile oeuvre. 

On the occasion of the centenary of this artist’s birth, Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar (Municipal Museum Alkmaar) is organizing the exhibition 100XLucebert – The life and work of a double talent. Lucebert’s life and work are presented on the basis of a hundred objects.

Pick of oeuvre
The exhibition 100XLucebert shows a pick of the poet’s oeuvre and displays a number of important paintings. Drawings from his teenage years, a letter from the war, manuscripts, poems recorded by Lucebert himself, some of his earliest paintings and his last unfinished work are also shown.
Curator Hélène Webers worked closely with Lucebert’s heirs to get as close as possible to the life and work of this versatile artist.

Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar developed a podcast to accompany the exhibition. In it, journalist Tom Rooduijn speaks with family, friends and Lucebert experts.
