Mari Andriessen is one of the most important Dutch sculptors of the 20th century. His sculpture is characterized by great expressiveness and sensitivity towards the subject, through which movement and emotion are conveyed to the viewer. It is not without reason that Andriessen made our most important post-war monumental sculpture groups: The docker in Amsterdam, the war memorial in Enschede and the Monument for the fallen Rotterdammers in Rotterdam. He also made portrait sculptures of famous composers, musicians and poets.
