NOT QUITE THE GOLDEN AGE, BUT STILL RATHER GRAND: Some Dutch Architecture & Interiors From 1750–1850 with Annette Welkamp

Tuesday 19 Jul 2011, 10:15 AM – 11:45 AM

Despite its small size, the Netherlands undoubtedly became the centre of world trade during the 17th century. It was rich, powerful, innovative and influential.

The 18th century witnessed a slow and slight decline in comparison, especially with rising competition from France and England. This lecture will take a tour of well-known and less familiar houses, palaces and other properties across the country, including Paleis het Loo (Arnhem), Fraeylemaborg (Slochteren) and Museum van Loon (Amsterdam).

ANNETTE WELKAMP is an arts and heritage consultant and Director of Cultural Connotations. In addition to working across Australia, she was formerly a Visual Arts Curator in the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands.
