The museum as drawing room
8 June 2022
Today we received a special visitors group in our museum. The Amsterdam Sunday Painters made use of the impressive main chamber of our museum for a drawing lesson on location. They were armed with a so-called silver point and specially prepared paper. Drawing with silver point - a pen made of pure silver - is a technique that has been used for finely shaded drawings since the sixteenth century. Ideally suited for drawing our pipes with their details and varied texture. A special experience for us, a great lesson for the artists.
