Professor Fock passed away
22 June 2021
Within the art-historical world, the city of Leiden has been known for decades as the city of applied arts. The first professor, Professor Theo Lunsingh Scheurleer, was succeeded in 1982 by Professor C. Willemijn Fock. Don Duco graduated with her in 1987. Later, Professor Fock was prepared to take on an advisory role in the Pijpenkabinet foundation, following her vision that applied arts should be stimulated across the board. As a result, our field of expertise also rose in prestige. We keep fond memories of Willemijn's commitment, in a formal sense, but also of pleasant hours with her at the dinner table.
