About Willem Hussem

Willem Hussem (Rotterdam 1900 – The Hague 1974) was a Dutch painter, sculptor and poet, best known for his abstract paintings made after World War II.

Hussem studied with Dirk Nijland and attended the Rotterdam Academy. Between 1918 and 1936, he lived and worked in Paris, where he met Piet Mondrian and Pablo Picasso. Besides Picasso, Vincent van Gogh also influenced his style.

After World War II, his works became abstract. He was part of art movements such as Fugare, the Liga Nieuw Beelden and Verve. His work is counted among the “Nieuwe Haagse School” art movement.

He was awarded the Jacob Maris Prize three times and received an invitation to the Venice Biennale in 1960. During his lifetime, he had solo exhibitions at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, Museum Het Princessehof in Leeuwarden and Stedelijk Museum in Schiedam, and participated in major group exhibitions at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven and Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. He also exhibited twice at the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh, US.

Currently, his works are in the collection of: Kunstmuseum Den Haag, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Dordrecht Museum in Dordrecht and Rijksmuseum Twente in Enschede (among others).
