MELLE – Painter of a Different Reality

A walk through the oeuvre of ‘the Amsterdam Hieronymus Bosch'

Melle Oldeboerrigter (1908-1976), also sometimes called ‘the Amsterdam Hieronymus Bosch’, is one of the most enigmatic painters of the 20th century. Not only do his paintings contain alienating scenes, but he did not want to be pigeonholed as an artist either. Yet, he who is elusive runs the risk of remaining misunderstood. With the major retrospective exhibition MELLE – Painter of a Different Reality, museum van Bommel van Dam is bringing the wonderous world of the somewhat forgotten artist back into the spotlight.

MELLE – Painter of a Different Reality has been compiled by guest curator Eliane Odding and can be seen in museum van Bommel van Dam in Venlo from 18 September 2022 to 26 February 2023.

Please note: There is a separate charge for this exhibition.
