Recently I had the opportunity to walk through the Gemeentemuseum The Hague (The Hague Municipal Museum of Modern Art) with a museum guide only and solely devoted to me. We visited a room I’d never seen before. It turns out the room is behind curtains because it is very susceptible to daylight. It is the Dijsselhof room.
Gerrit Willem Dijsselhof was a Dutch Art Nouveau designer who had designed a room for a doctor who died before he could enjoy Dijsselhof’s design. Thereupon the room was donated to the museum while it was being build. So the museum has a rather unique situation of a room that is build around the interior designed by Dijsselhof.
The throne is part of the room.
Or would Franciscus I stil use the Lateran Papal Throne?
With a new Pope named Franciscus I I’m curious whether they will design a simpler throne than for instance this one with the previous Pope.
Found on ProjectBook.
Tonight our Queen, H.M. Beatrix, Queen of The Netherlands, has announced she’ll abdicate in favor of her Son, H.R.H. Pince Willem Alexander on April 30, 2013. Off course the internet is flooded with parodies immediately, including this photoshopped throne.
