    Welcome to the website devoted to Kor Onclin's work (1918-2003)

    After his death in 2003 the expressive master in the art of living Kor Onclin left a sizeable and impressive body of works behind. The Onclin-Chabrion foundation strives with this website towards making the collection it administers available to all those interested. The explanatory texts are partly drawn up from the monograph "Colours of amazement", published on the occasion of Kor Onclin's 80th birthday. According to plan in 2018, consequently to this, a 'century celebration edition' will be issued.
