Bullet 6501-7000 Nul-Beweging – ZERO Movement ArtistsThe Dutch Nul-beweging (‘The Zero Period’) was formed in 1960 by Jan Schoonhoven, Armando, Jan Henderikse, Herman de Vries and Henk Peeters . The group existed until 1965. This period is indicated by ’De Nul-Periode’ (‘The Zero period’). The works of NUL are pre-eminently ‘anti-painterly’.Traditional materials such as paint and stone were replaced by mostly industrial materials. In general it can be said that the work of NUL is characterized by monochromy, repetition, seriality and the directness of the material.
Zero can be seen as a reaction to informal painting from the fifties (of which characteristics are that no plan is used in advance and no ideal of beauty is pursued.)
NUL originated in the international context of ZERO in Germany (Otto Piene, Heinz Mack, Günther Uecker), Azimuth in Italy (Piero Manzoni, Enrico Castellani, Augustino Bonalumi ) and nouveau realism in France (including Yves Klein, Daniel Spoerri, Arman and Jean Tinguely).
The Boezewinkel heirs have offered his collection for auction.
The artist Peter (BOEZ) Boezewinkel, who exhibited in 1964 together with others from the Nul group, remained loyal to the principles and style of the group and kept on creating and exhibiting typical Zero movement works after a career in the design world until he died in 2011.
Within this category several works by, among others, Jan Schoonhoven, Carel Nicolaas Visser, J. Schoonhoven jr., Peter Boezewinkel, Otto Piene, Heinz Mack, Henk Peeters and of course Peter Boezewinkel.

In short: An eclectic and attractive auction!
