A warehouse full of works by Karel Appel found in the UK


Reported as missing or stolen long ago, more than 400 works by Dutch painter, sculptor and poet Karel Appel were found in a bunch of crates, in a British warehouse.

The artist, who died in 2006 at age 85, was one of the founders of the Cobra movement. Just before he died in 2006, he designed a postage stamp for an exhibition on visual artists entitled ‘Kunst’ (‘Art’), the last work of art he ever made.

Now we wait and soon find out what kind of goodies we missed.

We once wrote about a film, The reality of Karel Appel, which also featured some music by Appel.
