Museum reopens on 5 June

The exhibition Goddesses of Art Nouveau opens immediately on 5 June. This is the first exhibition in the Netherlands devoted to the fascination for the female form in art nouveau. Around the year 1900 she was the dream and the nightmare of a generation of artists who were trying to escape reality. Works by René Lalique, Alphonse Mucha, Edvard Munch, Jan Toorop, Aubrey Beardsley and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec are on display in the exhibition alongside numerous other designs by leading international artists. A separate galley features female painters, photographers, ceramists and textile artists active within Art Nouveau, among them Estelle Sylvia Pankhurst and Wilhelmina Drupsteen. Goddesses of Art Nouveau is on show until 29 August 2021.
