Masterpieces in museum exhibitions
Several Dutch museums have included objects from the Kunstconsult collection in temporary art and design exhibitions this winter. On loan is glass by Andries Dirk Copier and Lino Tagliapietra to the National Glass Museum in Leerdam, ceramics by Hans de Jong to Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and silver by Georg Jensen to the National Silver Museum.
Amazing Murano glass
Hurry to see the amazing Murano glass objects by A.D. Copier and Lino Tagliapietra in the National Glass Museum in Leerdam. Or read our blog Magic art glass from Murano about the intense artistic connection that developed in the 1980s between the absolute master of Dutch glass design and this important Venetian glass master.
Gemeentemuseum Den Haag shows a subtle Polder vase by ceramic artist Hans de Jong (1932-2011) in an exhibition about his complete work. The vase reflects the landscape in which the artist lived and worked in the 1970’s: the Beemster polder, that was created in the 17th Century and has the UNESCO World Heritage Status nowadays. Hans de Jong was an important Dutch ceramist, known for the humor he put in his sculptural ceramic works.
