Dutch Dining

Gemeentemuseum The Hague | 20/09/2017 - 28/02/2016

No table setting would be complete without meticulously folded napkins. The European fashion for the decorative use of table linen dates back to the Renaissance. In our own day, Catalan artist Joan Sallas is reviving this ‘forgotten art’ with his astonishingly skillful birds, fish and rabbits. The exhibition will feature ten such virtuoso constructions, all specially folded for the occasion. Stars of the exhibition are two complete table services on load from the collection of the Dutch Royal House. Both services were presented to Queen Wilhelmina and Prince Hendrik on the occasion of their marriage.
