June 30 2018 to September 16 2018. The Rijksmuseum highlights this ‘Dutch Design’ in more than one hundred works of art from the Golden Age.
Fantastic sea creatures, monstrous beasts, whimsical body shapes and fluid contours that seem to drip like syrup from a spoon: all are manifestations of the ornament style known as kwab, ‘auricular’ or ‘lobate’.
View the artworks and take a look behind the scenes.
On 13 and 14 September 2018, the Rijksmuseum will organize an international two-day symposium on the occasion of the exhibition Kwab. Dutch Design in the Age of Rembrandt.
