Gallery Mokum was founded in the early 1960's. The gallery has been a critical site for the viewing of realism in Dutch painting, a position that strengthened the role realism continues to play in the larger Dutch art world.
Realism has always drawn a large public, and Gallery Mokum continues its role as the most identifiable venue for select artists working in this style. The gallery represents more than thirty artists. Initially featuring mainly Dutch artists, in recent years the gallery has expanded its horizon and now represents a many well known realists from other countries.
The broad scope in which these artists define their representational or realistic works of art can vary from still life paintings, portraits or even an expressionistic landscape. These two-dimensional works of art are complemented by hyper realistic sculptures in bronze. As Holland's oldest gallery, Mokum has the choice of working with the finest artists working in this tradition.
Please drop by the gallery, charmingly located in the heart of Amsterdam, for a personal viewing of their finely detailed realism and painterly personal visions or visit the current show online in the viewingroom.
Gallery Mokum offers their clients de Kunstkoop from the Mondriaan Fund. It offers individuals living in the Netherlands, or paying Dutch taxes, the possibility to purchase an artwork in monthly installments, without any interest. The aim of this service is to encourage private individuals to buy art and in doing so supporting the artists and generally stimulate the art market. Please check www.kunstkoop.nl for details.
