Rob van Doeselaar
Slave castle
In Ghana Rob van Doeselaar continues to experiment with abstract work. He paints on canvas and paper, but also on wood in various forms. He shows these works in Accra's National Museum.

Later on, impressions of several trips through the south of Ghana add bits of the landscape into his paintings.

In 2002 he had a special exhibition of paintings in Elmina's slave castle in commemoration of 300 years of diplomatic relationship between Ghana and the Netherlands. The first visitors were the Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and his wife princes Máxima.

Elegant palm trees are watching the castle. They rustle in the wind looking out to the sea, waving to everyone coming and going.
