© Galerie Horizon, 2012 A life with art All our life we were interested in art, which mainly was expressed by visiting museums, expositions and reading artbooks. We collected our first artworks During a diplomatic  mission in Moscow ( 1995 - 1998 ) we were fascinated by the special Russian touch of contemporary art,and the high level of professionalism. Many artsists became good friends. Some of them begged us vigorously to promote their works in Western Europe. Going back to Holland coincidided with going on pension, which gave us the opportunityto start a gallery in 1999. In the beginning we collected only works which represent a Russian interpretation of magic realism, symbolism and surrealism, in Russia usually called methaphysic art. Since 1999 we represent more then the above mentioned styles, but you will look in vain for abstract works. . 56 © Galerie Horizon, 2012 Sergey Lukyanov Introspection, Moscow, 1996 Boris  Indrikov, Give me your ring,  Moscow,  1997 57
