About Borzo

Borzo modern & contemporary art is one of the oldest galleries in the Netherlands and is located in a canalside house, originally built in the 17th century. In 1932 Alexander Bodon remodelled the property into the “Nieuwe Zakelijkheid" functionalist style and in 2005 Wiel Arets brought it up to date while retaining the Bodon elements.

Borzo specializes in NUL/Zero, Minimalist and Conceptual art. Artists such as Jan Schoonhoven, Ad Dekkers, Carel Visser and Ger van Elk are represented in our collection.

One of the aims of our exhibition policy is to make the link between modern art from the recent past and contemporary art. Artists of today are "standing on the shoulders" of their predecessors, regardless of the considerable contrasts.

For over one hundred years the Pinton mill has been weaving rugs and tapestries. It is a privately owned company, established at Felletin nearby Aubusson. Since then, the business has remained family owned for over three generations.
From the 50's until the end of 1980, Ateliers Pinton have produced numerous tapestries designed by famous artists such as Avery, Bazaine, Brianchon, Calder, S. Delaunay, Le Corbusier, Fumeron, Léger, Matégot, Miro, Motherwell, Bram van Velde, Zadkine, a.o.

 

De weverij van Pinton werd ruim honderd jaar geleden gesticht en weeft nog altijd tapijten.

Tussen 1950 en 1980 gaf Pinton veel kunstenaars opdracht tot het ontwerpen van tapijten. De meeste kunstenaars werden uitgenodigd om ter plaatse de cartons te tekenen en aanwijzignen te geven bij de uitvoering. De grootste kunstenaars-ontwerpers van die tijd hebben voor Pinton ontwerpen gemaakt: Avery, Bazaine, Brianchon, Calder, S. Delaunay, Le Corbusier, Fumeron, Léger, Matégot, Miro, Motherwell, Bram van Velde, Zadkine en vele anderen.
