Stanley Brouwn, This Way Brouwn, 1964

Grey portfolio with the title 'This Way Brouwn' stamped on front. 35 x 25 cm. Contains six loose sheets with original works measuring 24.5 x 32 cm, all stamped 'This Way Brouwn' in the lower right corner. 'R-25-6' handwritten on verso of each sheet, presumably the date of the action. Three sheets feature drawn directions in blue felt pen, three are left blank. One sheet is signed Brouwn 64 in pencil. This version shows KP encircled (Koningsplein). All sheets have slight toning around the edges. Browning on edges of the sheet depicting Heiligeweg, else in good condition. Very rare and appealing set.

Stanley Brouwn's iconic series This Way Brouwn is made up of doodles drawn by passers-by whom Brouwn asked for directions in Amsterdam's city centre. The artist then appropriated the itineraries by stamping them with the title of the series. The blank sheets are those by pedestrians who didn't know the directions.
