LA JOIE DE PEINDRE"RENSSEN 1984 - 2009"
To celebrate 25 years of painting, the first volume of works by Erik Renssen was published in 2009. This book chronicles Renssen's journey towards the artist known today. It shows the style development from his earlier realistic paintings inspired by Rembrandt, van Gogh, Modigliani and Morandi to his journey into the blue and pink periods of Pablo Picasso. Being much drawn to the cubist style elements of Braque and Picasso, Renssen then ventures into Jazz compositions and collage still lifes. The reader gets to know Renssen's early inspirations such as female beauty, architecture, Classical and Jazz music and cooking, that still play a large role in his work today.
