" Hos was a young teacher at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague when the Second World War broke out. He joined the Dutch underground resistance, hiding Jewish friends from the Academy and their families in his home, and forging passports and identification papers. Obviously this was not without risk to himself, his wife Tine and their young daughter Eske, and indeed he was eventually arrested, spending the end of the war in a Dutch prison. For this he would eventually receive a Medal of Honour from Israel, “righteous among the nations”." (See Eye Contact article below) 

Eske Hos has kindly made available some prints from her father's collection. Learn more about Kees Hos (1916-2015) and his highly influential New Vision gallery in the Auckland art scene during the 1960s.
