"In der Nähe von Roiten bei Rappottenstein malte Hundertwasser in diesem Haus, der "Hahnsäge", die unmittelbar am Kleinen Kamp liegt. Im Haus gibt es keinen Strom und keine Wasserleitung. Im Haus befand sich ein kleiner Herd, den Hundertwasser mit Holz beheizte. Hundertwasser kam zumal von der Hahnsäge zu Fuß nach Roiten um sich Milch von Bauern zu holen. Der Fußweg in eine Richtung dauert etwa 45 Minuten. Das Haus liegt tief im Wald in Einzellage. Unmittelbar am Kampf ragen riesige Granitblöcke aus dem Wasser. Hundertwasser malte hier gerne zwei bis drei Monate im Winter und schuf dabei ca. 20 bis 30 Werke. Er setzte sich auch jahrelang dafür ein, dass der Fußweg am Kamp nicht ausgebaut und für große Traktoren befahrbar ist. Das Haus wurde nach dem Tod von Friedensreich Hundertwasser 2000, später 2001 von dem Maler Previn Cherkorri bemalt. Die Hahnsäge ist heute im lokalem Privatbesitz." (bron en foto's: Norbert Danner)

Vanaf 9 augustus tot en met 5 januari is in het Cobra Museum voor Moderne Kunst een verrassende tentoonstelling te zien van het vroege werk van Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928 Wenen - 2000 Queen Elizabeth 2 in internationale wateren). Deze tentoonstelling, momenteel te zien in Museum Belvedère in Wenen, toont de vroege en enigszins vergeten Hundertwasser. Eind jaren 50, begin jaren 60 verbleef Hundertwasser veel in Japan waar hij onder meer het Zen boeddhisme bestudeerde en de leer hiervan toepaste op zijn werk. Het vroege werk kenmerkt zich onder meer door eindeloze ronde en kronkelende lijnen en horror vacui. Volgens Hundertwasser was de rechte lijn dan ook ‘goddeloos’. (bron: Cobra Museum, Amstelveen)

Francis Bacon #6

"In 1961, Francis Bacon moved to a new studio on Reece Mews, moments away from South Kensington junction and his former premises on Cromwell Place.

Converted from a former horse stable, Bacon would maintain the studio for the rest of his life.

Despite his wealth and fame, the Reece Mews property remained starkly simple.

The artist occupied only the upper level, which was reached via a dangerously narrow staircase (presumably, his large canvases were hoisted through the upper balcony door).

The toilet was squeezed out on the landing, as was the kitchen… which also contained a bath! During the colder months, Francis would light the cooker’s gas hob and use it to heat the room up whenever he took a dip!
Essentially, the South Kensington studio was for working and sleeping in only." (bron: View from the Mirror)

Francis Bacon #5

"In 1943, Francis Bacon moved to new digs in the ground-floor flat of 7 Cromwell Place, a stone’s throw from the Natural History Museum.

At the time, the building was rather draughty having suffered considerable bomb damage. This didn’t bother Francis though; he was more concerned in blacking out the windows… not as an air-raid precaution, but as cover for an illegal gambling den he’d set up!

Throughout his life, having a high-stakes flutter proved to be one of Bacon’s true vices.

It was a mind-set which also influenced his work. Having received no formal art-training, he frequently viewed the practice of trying out risky new techniques as a gamble… when it didn’t pay off, the offending canvas would be slashed and destroyed.

Betting aside, it was at Cromwell Place that Francis Bacon’s career as an artist really took off when, in 1944, he set about painting Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion…." (bron: View from the Mirror)

"Beginning in the 1960s, it was among the first in New York to become an artist building, and remains so today. Although stylistically distinct, the artists who have lived or worked there over the years are nevertheless bound together in their shared experience of this uniquely vibrant, artistic scene.
The building dates to the early 20th century and originally housed a button factory. It later became a warehouse for the locally owned Bloom & Krup hardware store. The first tenants, including Rivers, Claes and Patty Oldenburg, Yayoi Kusama, On Kawara, Chamberlain, and Herb Aach, arrived in the mid-1960s." (bron: EV Grieve)
