Comment
オランダの作家第一人者であるゲオルグ ハドラー氏です。南米やアジアの古代文明などをモチーフとし、自身のヨーロッパ的な感覚とを見事に融合させて独自の世界を展開させています。卓越した技術に裏付けられた高度な表現、そして石版石を我が子の様に愛してやまない版画家としての在り方を私は尊敬しています。

Georg Hadeler is one of the most well known artists in Netherlands. Using ancient South American and Asian motifs, he combines them skilfully with his own European sense to create his own world. I respect him as an artist as he loves lithography with his whole being and with amazing skills that create powerful and sophisticated expressions.
