Audience: Adults

Vera Gulikers, whose work is in SCHUNCK’s collection, painted multiple wall paintings in the SCHUNCK school of music.

To do this she studied the representation of musicians in the history of painting and music. She noticed that female figures nearly always play a secondary role in these depictions, for example as ‘carer’ or ‘enchantress’. In her wall paintings Gulikers chooses to give women in the history of art and music no longer a secondary role, but the leading act in which they are placed centre stage in their own right.

About the artist

In 2017, Vera Gulikers (1991) won the Koninklijke Prijs voor de Schilderkunst. In 2018, she was artist in residence in the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht.
