Rijksmuseum Specialty Tour 3: World-Class applied Art and Delft Blue and Design
Generally in museums, any object not being a painting or a work of art on paper is considered Applied Art. The Amsterdam Rijksmuseum is particularly rich in Applied Art. We will enjoy highlights in goldsmithing objects, furniture, design. A whole room has been set aside for Delft Blue. We will discuss its manufacture and commercial success. On the top floor, we can see advanced 20th Century art and design, opening up doors to other designers: Mondrian and even a complete aeroplane.
Private Guided Tour by professional Art History Scholar with excellent teaching skills. VIP entry. Avoid crowds: Best entry time is 9 AM.
