About this event
The Amsterdam houses were mainly built in the seventeenth century. Their interiors however were subject to constant renovations. In this lecture I will try and give an overview of the most splendid Amsterdam interiors of the eighteenth century, as well as their commissioners and designers, who were heavily influenced by the latest fashions in Italy, France, the Southern Netherlands or England.
Interiors for Display
This lecture is part of the 'Interiors for Display' lecture series. In the Spring of 2021, academics, curators and heritage professionals are brought together for a series of lectures that will cover various aspects of the eighteenth-century interior in the Netherlands and Europe.
