Frits Van Eden

Frits Van  Eden was born in Tilburg, Holland, in March 1944.  A short time later his family moved to and settled in the city of the The Hague, on the North Sea.  Because of early discovered dyslexia, he began study with private teachers, one of them Ed Strelitski.  Strelitski, who was a graduate of the Hague Academy, in turn, introduced Frits to Theo Bitter, Wim Beuning, Bram Roth, Derek Bus and Jan Goeting, all major names in the art world at that time.  Goeting was kind enough to allow Frits to work in his studio for a time.  All of these artists were members of the Pulchri Studio and through them Frits was invited to membership in Pulchri following four years study at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.  He became a working member of the Pulchri Studio in 1969, for both sculpting and painting.  This useful crossing of techniques reveals itself today in the 3-D quality of his work.
