Okke Weerstand - Van Gogh in Bronze
In June 2009, Okke Weerstand made a bust of Vincent van Gogh in bronze. The work was commissioned by his uncle Geert
Weerstand who has a permanent exhibition of about 75 works in stone and glass inspired by Van Gogh in the town of Urk in the
Netherlands. What started out as a surprise sculpture in modeling clay for his uncle was just the beginning of a series of
incredible Van Gogh inspired bronze sculptures by Okke Weerstand.
The bust shown below, Vincent van Gogh, is after his last self-portrait in 1889. The medium is bronze with patina and it is
located in the permanent exhibition of “Van Gogh in stone by Geert.” In addition to the original sculpture, Okke Weestand has
created several more bronze sculptures influenced by the paintings and drawings of Van Gogh.
