Born in the roaring twenties of a now unrecognizable Amsterdam, Anton Martineau has seen and participated in ninety years of history. His life is worth a novel. Together with the famous Lucebert, Martineau travelled France as he set out to be an artist. Later, he was associated with the famous Vijftigers group. His importance has been recognized throughout the years, resulting in solo exhibitions in museums such as The CoBrA-museum. But Martineau has always gone his own way, never wanting to belong to a single group. He has remained an unique voice in the Dutch art scene.
