WOMEN - Art In Times of Chaos
de PURY Presents ‘WOMEN – Art In Times Of Chaos’ - a game changing virtual exhibition and live auction, presenting artworks by outstanding contemporary women artists.
Each artist was invited to participate by offering an artwork of their choice that has been created no earlier than 2019. In doing so, the exhibition spotlights and celebrates the work of women artists that have been created during the recent turbulent times.
de PURY Presents 'Anton Corbijn' a special presentation of rarely seen, limited and final editions of photographs by the eminent Dutch artist.
Including portraits of notable figures such as Kate Moss, Virgil Abloh, Damien Hirst, Gerhard Richter, and Naomi Campbell to name a few.
Corbijn’s style of photography gives a raw edge to his subjects, capturing imperfection and personality by shooting with a slow shutter speed to capture gestures and movement in a unique way. Starting in the late 20th century, his style of producing black and white photos using grainy film became an important part of our visual culture, and is a technique that has been widely utilised since.

de PURY Presents 'Henry Hudson - Microcosm' a new series of portraits of leading art figures including a.o. Ed Ruscha, Sean Scully, Mary McCartney, and Ai Weiwei.
