Artdealer P. de Boer from Amsterdam presents contemporary artists side by side with old masters. What are the similarities? What are the differences? The answer to those questions can be seen at the exhibition ‘Bloemlevens’ (flower lifes). Contemporary Dutch art and photography in dialogue with floral paintings of Dutch and Flemish old masters. Mimi Berlin Bloggerteam went to the vernissage of this exhibition and took some pictures for you; who could’t be there.
