Few artists have been as versatile as Henry van de Velde (1863-1957). Trained initially as a painter, he then developed as an architect, interior designer, designer and art advisor. He created a highly impressive oeuvre; with his furniture, silverware, porcelain, jewellery, book design and other creations, always managing to combine both practicality with unique style and elegance. This collection highlights the diversity of his work and is a reflection of his originality and talent in crossing the boundaries between a range of different art forms.
