Luxury Design, Past & Present
A bright and colorful Vanitas oil painting by Dutch artist Erik Renssen. With this artwork, Renssen participates in the historic Dutch tradition of creating beautiful paintings that carry a meaningful message. Renssen shows us that life is transient - the flower, now so full of life, will soon die and join the realm of the skull. Vibrantly painted, this work reminds us that although life is short, it can also be filled with beauty. It is an invitation to remember what is meaningful and worthwhile and to make the most of the moments that we have.

Erik Renssen (b. 1960, Deventer, NL.) is an independent artist - an intellectual assembler of images. Although primarily a painter, Renssen also enjoys making limited edition lithographs, linocuts and sculptures in bronze. Renssen’s admiration for the work of Pablo Picasso has resulted in a meticulous study of the great master’s work. He has internalised Picasso’s visual language and he uses it to paint his own personal stories. The artist is represented by Renssen Art Gallery which is located in the Spiegelstraat in Amsterdam’s historic art district.
