Flowers in Blue
Through the lens of Bas Meeuws
17 April until 10 September 2023
Just as with the masters of the 17th-century flower still life, reality forms the basis for Meeuws, but he then bends it to his will. For the exhibition ‘Flowers in Blue’, Royal Delft commissioned Bas Meeuws to create new work and to place the Delft blue vases from the museum collection in a context where the vases belong, filled with beautiful baroque bouquets.
Bas gets his inspiration from paintings by painters such as Balthasar van der Ast and the Bosschaert family. This gives a unique end result in which 17th-century paintings are combined with the latest techniques.
