Lot Essay

'I'm not a pessimist. Maybe I don't have a primitive feeling of happiness, that is true. Sometimes my color is happy but not the expression.'
(Karel Appel quoted in: 'Quotes', K. Appel (1989), in Karel Appel - the complete sculptures, eds. H. de Visser/R. Hagenberg, New York 1990, p. 85)
