Bas Meeuws has recently made a photographic record of the passing of the four seasons in the gardens of Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot. From these photographs the artist has composed a unique flower piece inspired by the still-life floral paintings of the Dutch Golden Age. De lieve lent by Wintertijdt (‘The sweet spring in wintertime’) is a contemporary still-life photograph conveying the scents and colours of the castle’s gardens through all seasons. This highly symbolic work with references to Muiderslot’s rich history is on display in the Golden Age tour at the castle. From 22 December 2018 until 12 May 2019 this work will be supplemented by a selection of Meeuws’ other still-life photographs of flowers along this tour.
Before your visit, please check out all practical information about opening hours, entrance fees etc.
The castle will be closed on 25 and 31 December 2018 and the first of January 2019.
