Amsterdam

Karel Appel House

  Dapperstraat 7 ,   Oost          (+31) 655 87 19 74     more than a year ago
One of the original founders of the CoBrA (Copenhagen, Brussels, Amsterdam) art movement was born in this house in 1921. Although originally named Christiaan Karel Appel, he later dropped the first name and became a star of the Dutch art scene. His works are now exhibited at prestigious museums around the globe including the Gugenheim in New York. The local De Key housing association and the DUS Architects firm have redesigned the building's interior creating a mini-museum in honour of Appel. Just look for the bronze apple on the façade that states: Karel Appel Was Hier.
