The Dutch television producer Jef Rademakers (1949) compensated for his disillusionment in politics, art and love by creating an art collection: “Life is an illness that you just have to suffer through. Romantic art is one of my survival strategies.” Through August 26, the KUMU art museum is showing this unique private collection in an exhibition titled “Romantic View”. The works on view not only give an overview of 19th century German, Belgian and Dutch art and the popular genres of the time, but also provides an image of romanticism through the subjective prism of one person – the interesting personality, disposition and life perception of Jef Rademakers. This is a great opportunity to see, in person, works by such stars of art history as Basile de Loose, Bart van Hove, Jacob Abels, Petrus van Schendel, and many more. Come autumn, the exhibition will travel to the Sinebrychoffin art museum in Helsinki, where it will be on view from September 27 through January 13 of next year. The Rademakers collection has been previously shown in St. Petersburg's Hermitage.
