Historical Context:
The art scene in Amsterdam was active when Lixenberg arrived in 1958 and he began to develop a more expressive vision in his artwork. For a time, his work looked to the Fauves, while the expressive brush of the postwar Cobra movement artists also inspired his quick gestural images of the 1960s.
