    BUCCELLATI
    The Buccellati brand dates back to 1919 when Mario Buccellati opened his first jewellery boutique in Milan. Having acquired years of experience working for renowned jeweller Beltrami & Besnati, the brand became reputable for its quality pieces. Gianmaria Buccellati, the second generation of the brand, followed in his father’s footsteps in becoming a master goldsmith himself and successfully established his own brand of jewellery in 1971 after his father’s death. He inherited his father’s distinctive style of using texture-engraving, a technique that transforms gold and silver into wonderful creations with a tactile feel similar to tulle and damask.
    The brand expanded worldwide, earning several awards for his work as a goldsmith and entrepreneur. In 2011, Gianmaria and his brothers united under the Buccellati brand after merging their companies to further expand business prospects. To this day the company remains a family-run business which continues to create innovative, one-of-a-kind creations.

    AMSTERDAMParis, with all its creative hotspots, exhibitions and training opportunities, exerted a magical attraction throughout the nineteenth century on artists from all corners of the world. New generations left their native countries to go to where the action was.

    The exhibition The Dutch in Paris 1789-1914 at the Van Gogh Museum (Oct. 13, 2017, to January 7, 2018) will present Paris with the work of Dutch artists like George Hendrik Breitner, Kees van Dongen, Piet Mondrian, and, of course, Vincent van Gogh. Not only did French artists influence their work, the Dutch made their mark on contemporary artists in France too. For the first time these works are shown in conjunction with each other.

    The Dutch in Paris can be read as a passionate love story between the Netherlands and France: painters take the viewer on a journey to the ever-changing French capital and show us the city with their eyes and hearts. The chosen works explore Paris and its development through images of Haussmann’s famous boulevards, nightspots like the Folies Bergères and districts such as Montmartre.

    The Dutch in Barbizon recounts the story of French artists (primarily) from the Hague School, who travelled to the area around the village of Barbizon in France. This exhibition is dedicated to the Dutch response to the renowned Barbizon School.
