Yvonne Kracht (1931-2021), early abstract painting, 1960s


Striking geometric abstract painting in textured hues of deep brown, black and muted beige oil paints on canvas by Dutch Artist Yvonne Kracht (1931 – 2021), titled “Earth”, signed and dated on the back.  Kracht was a sculptor, graphic artist and painter working in Amsterdam. From an abstract expressionist style of painting, in 1960 she began depicting etchings and screen prints of tight geometric shapes based on machine parts. She then executed these as three-dimensional small objects and in monumental format, including Corten steel and aluminum, later with mirrors, in assignments for public space.
She brought together ratio and emotion in roughly brushed drawings of mathematical principles. Kracht’s paintings and sculptures are found in numerous collections, including the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Centraal Museum Utrecht.
