AUCTION European artists support Japanese colleagues
The devastating tsunami and earthquake catastrophe in Japan is a tragedy, that will take the country several decades to come to terms with. Innumerable people died, were wounded, are homeless, have lost their livelihood and it will take a long time before a sense of normality can return.
Numerous artists - painters, sculptors, ceramicists and artists working in other media, have been affected by the destruction. Studios and workshops have been ruined, which makes it impossible to continue normal work.
In some cases, the largest part of the work of a lifetime has been destroyed, these are irreplaceable losses. Yet, even in such cases, the fundamentals to continue life and work, after the catastrophe have to be established.
Japans contribution to art history of the world is of vast importance and many artists world-wide have a close artistic and humane bond towards the country. Thus, more than fifty artists got together, to indicate their support, by means of a charity auction.
