  Permanent exhibition from Dec 1, 2012
  Kunstmuseum Den Haag, The Hague

Gemeentemuseum Den Haag possesses one of the largest and finest collection of Delftware in the world.


These unique pieces are to feature in an enchanting new exhibition that opens on 1 December 2012. Delft Blue pottery was first created in the city around 1660, when Vermeer painted his famous View of Delft. The magnificent pieces produced in those early days will be on display in all their glory this winter.

The permanent exhibition View of Delftware, comprising over 235 items, will be a dynamic presentation that gives a unique view of the Delftware industry through the ages. The highlights of the collection include a number of tulip vases. These impressive pieces, with spouts to hold tulips, were a fusion of Eastern and Western forms, decorative motifs and Asian porcelain.
