Dutch delftware is an iconic product often regarded as a symbol of the Netherlands' seventeenth century Golden Age. One of the biggest and best collection now on display at Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.
This autumn, the Gemeentemuseum is mounting a unique exhibition on the subject. Seventeenth-century ‘anatomy lesson’ paintings will be shown side by side with works on similar themes by top international classic modern and contemporary artists.
The more you know, the more you'll see! Every Sunday one of our keen art historians will be here to give you a short background talk on a particular exhibition, artist or item in the collection.
Based on visionary, poetic and human connections, 'Discover the Modern' reveals the personalities behind the work of top artists like Claude Monet, Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Piet Mondriaan, Francis Bacon, Constant and Louise Bourgeois – the artist’s doubts and difficulties, exuberance and sensuality, search for utopia or playfully child-like approach to creation.
