Rob Stultiens NEDERLANDS (1922 – 2002) a pupil of Charles Vos at the High School of Applied Arts in Maastricht, continued his studies with Piet Esser at the Rijksacademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam (1946-1948) and with Oscar Jespers at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht. His versatile oeuvre includes sculptures, monumental work and small ceramic sculptures. He received the Hustinx Prize in 1969. In honor of the celebration of his silver jubilee as a sculptor in 1976, a retrospective of his work was held in the Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht. He has exhibited in Belgium, Germany, France, Austria and the Czech Republic, and in dozens of locations throughout the Netherlands. Rob Stultiens called his work “Rob Art”. And, as the Limburg poet Leo Herberghs translated his romantic desires into poetry in his poetry collection “With earthen fingers” (1955), so Rob Stultiens “wrote” his own ceramic book; a “lyrical collection of poetry of earth”. Sometimes he could, as it were, be in a ceramic whirl. Then he had to express the poetry and dreams that lived in him. Nervous, not knowing anything to stop, he was busy making one image after another and adjusting the clay to his own taste. A poetic ceramist who was led by eroticism and religion that he connected. In the past he had mainly sought large forms; through the small ceramic images that emerged in later times, he showed himself to be the breed storyteller he was by nature. The exhibition at Museum Valkenburg therefore includes a selection from this small ceramic work.
