statue

This bronze bust dates from 1985 and is from the Vredenburg concert hall in Utrecht. It is 39cm high. The hall closed in summer of 2007 for a thorough renovation which could last a few years. The above photo was taken by our friend Pepijn van Doesburg shortly before the hall closed. We are most grateful to Pepijn for sending us a copy of the photo.
