Bas Jan Ader is both well known and little known as an artist. He died, or disappeared in 1975 at the age of 33, in a boat somewhere off the coast of Cape Cod. He was attempting to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a 13 foot sailboat. Why?
Dutch/Californian artist Bas Jan Ader was last seen 9n 1975 when he took off in the smallest boat ever to cross the Atlantic. He left behind a small, unusually influental oevre-more so today then ever before.
