Art & Objects of the Dutch Royal Family
This thread is about the various pieces of Art owned by the Dutch royal family.
Here a look at the painting 'Vivat Oraenge' that was offered as a gift to HM the Queen on her 25th jubilee. HM donated the painting to Palace Het Loo. The painting was made by Jan Davidsz. De Heem around 1670 and costed around 725.000 euro.
The painting was previously owned by HRH Princess Christina, who sold it at an auction after she divorced Jorge Guillermo.
I like the symbolism of the painting, (the oranges) but parts of the painting are quite dark arent they (or is it just the light here - we're in the middle of hail and the lights keep flickering...)?
