Gerti Bierenbroodspot (1940) is a well known Dutch painter, sculptor, writer and archeologist. After attending the Academy in Amsterdam she enjoyed very early success in her career. So much so that Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam acquired her work. Instead of becoming the type of artist who feeds of such a success indefinitely, she decided to chase new dreams which she found in traveling to destinations with a rich archeological heritage. The iconography of classical antiquity inspired her to create the mythical world of a romantic ‘time traveler’ that she expresses in her work.
