No Ferrari for Nicky Lauda
1200 pixel version

I took this picture yesterday on a nice exhibition in museum “De Hallen” in Haarlem.

The visitor:
He inspired me for the title of this picture. With the red cap on his head he let me think he was Nicky Lauda with the red cap he is always wearing.:

The Car
No red Ferrari but a wooden car made by Joost Conijn
The outside of the car is mainly of wood, but the car also use wood as fuel for a wood gas-generator. Joost travelled with this car in Eastern Europe.

The painting
The painting the man is looking at is of Wijtze Gerrit Carel (Wim) Schuhmacher.
He was a Dutch painter and designer. He is mostly associated with Magic realism.
His nickname is "The Master of Grey" because of the grey haze that seems to cover his later work. Towards the end of his life, he became considerably less productive due to increasingly worse eyesight.

The Exhibition
WANDERLUST - Dutch Artists’ Urge to Travel since 1850
28.05.2016 - 11.09.2016
Wanderlust, a major exhibition being staged this summer in De Hallen Haarlem, focuses on travel as a source of inspiration for artists. There will be countless examples of Dutch art from the last century and a half, including paintings, sketchbooks, photographs and three-dimensional work. Dozens of artists are represented - from Jan Sluijters, Isaac Israëls and Marius Bauer to contemporary artists like Joost Conijn, Jan Dibbets, Rob Birza, Jennifer Tee and Roy Villevoye. Their journeys generated on-the-spot impressions or inspired creative manipulations on their return home.
