Live restoration in the gallery: works of art by Ferdi
The Bonnefanten holds six of the approximately 15 Hortisculptures by Ferdi (1927, Arnhem-1969, Baarlo), making it the largest collection of works by Ferdi. Unfortunately, the sculptures have been in moderate to poor condition for quite some time. In 2018, SRAL fully restored the Damsel Dragonfly (1967). In 2021, the Bonnefanten had two other Hortisculptures superficially cleaned, after which the decision followed that it is high time to have the entire collection thoroughly restored.
