Art nouveau and art deco from the Netherlands
A selection from the collections of the Drents Museum Assen
Using objects from the collection of the Drents Museum Assen, an overview is presented of the Dutch applied arts from the 1880-1940period. A veritable period of growth in the history of the Dutch arts, the importance of which is practically equal to that of the Golden Age.
Characteristic of this period is the fact that many artists venture out into multiple areas, often driven by the desire to access a wider audience beyond the affluent elite.
