Bucket with Eggs on Chair by Hans-Peter Feldman

Found it recently at Museum Voorlinden

Hans-Peter Feldmann (17 January 1941 – 24 May 2023) was a German visual artist. Feldmann’s approach to art-making was one of collecting, ordering, and re-presenting.

Feldmann was born on 17 January 1941. In the 1960s, Feldmann studied painting at the University of Arts and Industrial Design Linz in Austria. He began working in 1968, producing the first of the small handmade books that would become a signature part of his work. These modest books, simply entitled Bild (Picture) or Bilder (Pictures), would include one or more reproductions from a certain type—knees of women, shoes, chairs, film stars, etc.–their subjects isolated in their ubiquity and presented without captions. In 1979 Feldmann decided to pull out of the art world and just make books and pictures for himself. In 1989 the curator Kasper König persuaded Feldmann to exhibit in a gallery again.

Feldmann died on 24 May 2023, at the age of 82.[3]
