In line with this exhibition Jasper Krabbé explains on film how he functions as a descendant of a well known family of artists. The film shows him debating the pros and cons of this position. It shows us Jasper Krabbé preparing for the exhibition at Museum Jan Cunen. 

Krabbé developed his distinct vernacular separate from winds and fashion. It consists of poetic, timeless and intimate portraits and memories of places, persons and events. His work shows his love for craftsmanship and gives away a sensibility to color. Above all it speaks of a soft kind of melancholia.
