Ab Wouters (1918 â€' 1990) was, together with Archibald Dumbar and Chris Steenbergen, part of the leading generation of goldsmiths who worked directly after World War II. Ab Wouters interpreted the art of goldsmith in a broad way, his works include both jewellery and large, monumental pieces. Museums like Boymans van Beuningen, Rijksmuseum and Museum Arnhem own pieces by Ab Wouters and his jewellery is collected by art collectors.
