Coosje van Bruggen

Coosje van Bruggen was a critic, art historian, and artist known for the colorful public sculptures she created around the world with her husband, Pop artist Claes Oldenburg. Over 30 years, Van Bruggen and Oldenburg created more than 40 public sculptures for parks, urban centers, and museums. Each piece depicts a monumentally sized object, like Trowel I, a 1971 sculpture of an oversized garden tool, on the grounds of the Kröller-Müller museum in Otterlo, the Netherlands.
