Wall poem To a Rose

The poem is from Jacob v. Lennep . A politicus who lived from 1802 till august 1868 in Amsterdam. The painting is from Rombout Oomen made in 2004 and was on that moment the biggest in Amsterdam and gave a lot of consternation as you can read here. One for monday murals here.

  7. Well they do say the success of street art depends on the amount of discussion it causes.. I would say this one could be described as brilliant in that respect s.c. Really enjoyed this post :)

  10. What a great mural! Seems to me it shows the power of women. Glad to hear that after all the controversy, the decision is to keep it as it is.

  12. My first thought was they's never get away with that kind of mural in the US! Artistically though I think it's pretty visually compelling (without knowing the backstory).

  13. Since I don't know Dutch I can't get the gist of the poem but the illustration says enough. The contrast of all the modern equipment at the bottom makes the picture.
