The bronze statue, inspired by the painting “The Potato Eaters” by Vincent van Gogh is nearing its revelation. But before the image is presented to the public, financial support is still required.
Artist and also creator of the bronze, Peter Nagelkerke, therefore organized a press conference on Tuesday to recruit sponsors.
‘The Potato Eaters’ is a world famous painting made by Vincent van Gogh in Nuenen. Nagelkerke made a eponymous man-sized 3D version in bronze
A seat will soon be placed near the statue in Nuenen. It will give exactly the same perspective on the group as Van Gogh had during the making of the painting.
