The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam (NL) was completely renovated in 2013. During the renovation a large part of the collection was digitized establishing the Rijksstudio, a website where more than 150,000 works of art may be found.
The Rijksstudio wanted to acquaint the Etsy community with the art of the Rijksmuseum, therefore they organized a design competition – the Rijksstudio Award. The Rijksmuseum has asked five Etsy sellers to create items inspired by a picture of the Rijksstudio. Both, Etsy and the Rijksmuseum are proud of the final result.
Guild of ‘14 – exhibishion which was just openend this week – presents the work of nine members of the Etsy from Canada, Germany, France, United Kingdom and the Netherlands – where acontemporary interpretation is made of their favorite works from the Rijksmuseum. This time we used a fashion point of view, we present the results at Gallery 33 during Fashion Week in Amsterdam.
