Open Monumenten Dagen 2013After a stroll through the old town of Dordrecht yesterday, we stopped at an antiques store to look at some chandeliers. I was very happy to find a pile of Art Nouveau tiles there as well. Tiles that I actually recognised and wrote about a while ago. It made me realise that whilst I hardly knew anything about Art Nouveau when I started this blog – my Journey into getting to know Art Nouveau – barely one year later I can actually recognise these tiles (designed by J.P. van den Bosch, and produced at Plateelbakkerij Holland, Utrecht between 1898 and 1900) in an antiques store!

A few shops down the road I found another pile: guidebooks for the upcoming ‘Open Monumentendagen’ event (Open Monument Days) in Dordrecht. The event is going to take place on 14 & 15 September 2013, all over the country actually, and finding these booklets gives me a chance to prepare my visit to the open Art Nouveau monuments that are closed on other days…
