Just a question: in which way the Cobra-movement which sose more or less at the same time era connects to this?

Geert, the COBRA group was of course highly inspired, to a point that they considered themselves "heir" to the Abstract Expressionists. The COBRA also produced some interesting graphic works, experimenting with forms, multi-layered colours, etc. Karel Appel's lithographs and silkscreens were good examples.

Geert, can you elaborate on the COBRA's artistic [or political in this instance] statements?

I enjoyd the sculptures of Markus Lupretz very much. Karel Appen, Pierre Alechinsky, Alexander Calder and Gunther Frutrung are also good artists.
My favorite is Salvador Dali - but this is surrealismus.

Cementarnica - Miravci 2:0 (Kostadinovski 40'-pen. Naumcevski 43')
Belasica - Cementarnica 1:2 (Markov 24' - Donev 9'-og Trajkovski 47')
Cementarnica - 11 Oktomvri 2:1 (Jakovlevski 15' 77' - Kostadinovski 26'-og)
Cementarnica - Belasica 4:1 (Braga 23' 38' Ristovski 43' Kostadinovski 63' - Jurcevski 88')

Geert, can you elaborate on the COBRA's artistic [or political in this instance] statements?

COBRA was an amalgan of Belgian, Dutch and Danish artists (painters, sculptures, poetes,...) who just after the war (1948) gathered round a manifest. The artistic values lay in the spontanious creation of art in which the process of creating is as important as the result (the work) itself. Originality and coincidence play an important role in this which explains the relation with primitive art and also with "outsider's art" (e.g. mental patients).

Politically their values lay in the rage about, and rejection of the war. They see it as the big nothing after which nothing can ever be the same. The entire emptyness which now has to be filled and for that all conventions have to go. In their art but also in other fields of live total freedom of expression is promoted

That was just out of my head, if most certainly is not complete

Except that Vinny was about 50+ years ahead of his time

The brush strokes certainly inspired many Abstract Expressionists, Nick. Arshile Gorky was one, Jackson Pollock -- whose pre Ab-Exp work was actually ultra realistic and, at one point, he even copied El Greco -- was another.

Actually, Van Gogh painted "Starry Night" after he saw Jean-François Millet's (1814-1875) painting of the same title at JFM's estate sale and exhibition. Van Gogh was an ardent admirer of Millet and had made replicas of many of his paintings.
