Great Danes - Museumnacht Den Haag

Great Danes

Two Copenhagen porcelain manufacturers – Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grøndahl – caused quite a stir between 1890 and 1930 with their revolutionary underglaze painting techniques. In Great Danes Kunstmuseum Den Haag will present some extraordinary unique items made by the two factories displaying unparalleled technical quality and a distinctive aesthetic. Although the objects were collected around the fin de siècle by European royal families and were admired internationally at the time, today they seem to be somewhat forgotten. Kunstmuseum Den Haag is to show around 70 of these unique items from Denmark in the first presentation of its kind in the Netherlands.
