One of the main goals of Fondation Constant is to realise a website offering access to the full body of work created by Constant during his lifetime, a so called digital catalogue raisonné. To set up the database for this, Fondation Constant is in the process of gathering all data regarding Constant’s works of art and their whereabouts.
NB: This website strives to become the catalogue raisonné of Constant's oeuvre BUT is a work-in-progress! We add works, publications, exhibitions and related information to it on a daily basis.
Besides financial support there is another way in which you can help the foundation to realise the catalogue raisonné. If you are in possession of (a) work(s) of art by Constant (1920-2005) you can alert us by filling in the catalogue raisonné form here:
CATALOGUE RAISONNE FORM
Choose the option oral assessment at the start of the form and add CR in the last comment box.
Pleas note that general terms and conditions apply!
When the work of art is known to the foundation and no doubt exists about it’s authenticity, the foundation will ask the owner to allow our professional art photographer to take high-resolution photographs* of the work. The work of art will then be added to the catalogue raisonné.
The writing of the catalogue raisonné is suported by the Academic Committee, which advises the board on best practices, content, quality measures, procedures and format.
The Academic Committee consists of:
Dr. Dolf Broekhuizen: Architecture Historian
Chair of the Academic Committee and member of the board of Fondation Constant
Dr. Els Hoek: Author of the catalogue raisonné of Theo van Doesburg and curator at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen
Prof. dr. Katja Kwastek: Professor of Art History of the Modern Age at the Faculty of Arts of the VU Amsterdam
