    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.

According to plan in 2018, consequently to this, a 'century celebration edition' will be issued.
