Out together, home together (1995) Ellen Vomberg
Within an ornament frame in De Ruyterstraat, Ellen Vomberg painted in 1995 Out together, together home, on which the ship SS Rotterdam of the Holland-America Line is waved goodbye. The style of the painting pays homage to the famous posters of the Holland-America Line from the 20s and 30s. The painting fits within the theme of the Noordereiland, which presents itself as a ship that can sail out of Rotterdam at any moment.
