Beauty in transition
Jugendstil in the embroidery workshop

Temporary exhibition. The embroidery of the Sisters of the Poor Child Jesus was mainly designed and executed in the neo-styles that were so popular in the second half of the nineteenth century. Around the turn of the century, a new art movement called Jugendstil emerged as a counter-reaction to these neo-styles. The new style was not immediately embraced by the sisters. It was not until 1924 that they were able to make the new style their own. The result can be seen in this temporary exhibition. The exhibition consists of never-before-seen jugendstil embroideries from the museum’s collection.

The exhibition can be seen from 30 June to 21 August. There is no surcharge on the regular admission price.
