'Rijks, Masters of the Golden Age' premieres in the US
After resounding success of its launch in Amsterdam and Milan, Marcel Wanders presents 'Rijks, Masters of the Golden Age' at the Bisazza Flagship Store in New York, on May 16th at 6pm, 2016. This will be the US premiere of this one-of-a-kind homage to 17th-century Dutch Masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum’s prestigious Gallery of Honour. As Marcel talks with New York magazine Design Editor Wendy Goodman, guests of the premiere will hear how the finest materials, the most innovative techniques and the testimonies of thought leaders from the worlds of philosophy, art, film, food, trend, business and design combined to create this groundbreaking art publication. The book will bring those in attendance eye to eye with over 60 iconic paintings such as Rembrandt’s Night Watch and Vermeer’s Milkmaid. Having garnered great response from specialized and general audiences already, 'Rijks, Masters of the Golden Age' will continue to build its acclaim during the International Contemporary Furniture Fair and citywide festival NYCxDESIGN. "We've transported these paintings from a different age and vividly brought them to life.” – Marcel Wanders.
