Etsy Museum date: Spot the brooches!

18 April 2013 | category: Uncategorized

On saterday we visited the Boijmans museum in Rotterdam. Me and my fellow Etsy collegues (Margriet from Maggieagain, Yvonne from Mouseblossom and Annelies from Allihoppa) had a great day and saw some lovely art.

What a surprise – I will focus on the brooches we saw ;-) The ones below we saw in the ‘Hand made’ exhibition. They belong to the collection of Marjan Unger.

She is a Dutch expert for applied art, specifically for jewelry art. Marjan is also the author of a book called Dutch Jewellery in the 20th Century (Zonder wrijving geen glans; het Nederlandse sieraad in de 20ste eeuw), published in 2004.

She and her husband Gerard Unger (a graphic designer) have recently donated their collection of Dutch jewelry to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

After a good lunch we visited de Kunsthal. There we saw the Pastoe exhibition and the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition. Woeh, it was so crowded!

I did not find any brooches in the exhibition but there were some in the pop-up store. But boy: 95 euro’s for a brooch….. Oempf!

To finish this post, some non-brooch news. See the teddy? This is Nana, Gaultier’s childhood teddy bear. When he was little, Jean Paul made Nana’s brassiere out of a newspaper.
