Catalogue Raisonn
     The Catalogue Raisonné is a systematically and logically arranged catalogue that documents each work of art by Gerrit Verstraete. This documentation will ensure the artwork's authenticity, and continue to build the reputation and value of the artist's body of work, including Provenance, and Certificates of Authenticity, such as the stamp bearing "Certified Original Art / Gerrit Verstraete Archives." The Catalogue Raisonné is still under construction.

     As of September 2014, the Catalogue Raisonné is posted in this page as a PDF Document. The Document lists (subject to change without notice) the original artwork created by Gerrit Verstraete.

     This is the artist as a purist, in a collection of sketchbooks that comprise a lifelong inspirational journal of ideas and dreams. Some will never see the light of day to remain hidden in concept sketches, notations, and a running private commentary about the artist's thought process. Some become finished works of art. Others are volumes of coffee shop sketches to remind the artist, that regardless of the abstractions of a solitary journey in his studio, keeping "in touch with real people in real time," is good medicine for the human spirit. 

Where you will find my artwork in private, corporate, and public collections.

     "This is the other side of my creative coin." One, the world of expressive images, the other a world of expressive words. The writings are a personal reservoir and resource for critical thought that have found their way into my novels, an autobiography, critical commentary, spiritual teachings on the Kingdom of God, scholarly literature, newspaper columns, as well as poetry.
