Gerard Wernars - Abstract work


Gerard Wernars (1924-2003) started his career in the advertising department of De Bijenkorf in Amsterdam. He started in 1947 as an independent designer. He was also a part-time teacher at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague from 1969 to 1985. From the 1960s, Wernars was also involved in new techniques in graphic design, such as animation and computer graphics. That his work was highly valued is apparent from the many prizes awarded to Wernars. Type: Graphic work Year: date unknown but presumably mid 1990s last century Carrier: paper Style: abstract Signed: hand signed Dimensions: 50 x 60 cm Frame: 51 x 61 cm Edition: 1 of 2 Several exhibitions are devoted to the work of Wernars: 1.

Duwaer Prize, in 1959 and 1960 the poster prize of the Benelux Affiche Exhibition, and in 1962 the H.N. Werkmanprijs. He was twice awarded by the G.J. Thieme Fund (in 1963 and 1964); twice he won the competition for the Best Dutch Book Design (in 1961 and 1967). In 1965 he received the Typomundus 20 award.
