Gevangenpoort

The Gevangenpoort (Prison Gate) was originally the entrance gate of the Buitenhof and was used as prison from 1420 to 1828.

GEMEENTE MUSEUM AFTER RESTORATION

ANOTHER DETAIL.....

The dark blue glass on top of the wall is a lantern!

Visiting an exhibition, a fantastic one, here in Het Haags Gemeente Museum, I bought some postcards for my own collection and would love to share them with you.

They show you how many fabulous, splendid things were made at the delft-ware factory "ROZENBURG" in THE HAGUE.

GEMEENTE MUSEUM

HET GEMEENTE MUSEUM......

Architect was the world famous architect H.P. BERLAGE (yes, the same who designed the BEURS VAN BERLAGE in AMSTERDAM).
He designed it in 1919-1920.

This Museum was built between 1927 - 1935 and restored between 1996 and 1998.

11th of April 2002 I went there.......but the ponds, once full of water lilies were still empty........shall have to have a look in summer; living in The Hague these Museum Gardens and the ponds with the lilies was one of my favourite places ......

How wonderful this was you can see on the photograph under MUST SEE ACTIVITIES on my main page!

INTERIOR GEMEENTE MUSEUM

ONE OF THE CORRIDORS OF THIS BUILDING...

The museum HET HAAGS GEMEENTE MUSEUM is situated at the STADHOUDERSLAAN and it has two ornamental lakes. Such a pity that Berlage died so that he couldn't see it finished and inaugurated!
His plan, wonderful plans were often, too often rejected! Too ambitious, too expensive etc..

Gemeentemuseum The Hague

Following its extensive renovation, the Gemeentemuseum reopened its doors in 1998, once again revealing the remarkable qualities of the latest creation of architect H.P. Berlage (1863-1934). The museum has been extended with a Fashion Gallery measuring more than 1000 m2, situated below the museum's inner court. The gallery will host temporary exhibitions of the finest developments in national and international fashion. Also new are the 15 cabinets with industrial art from the Near, Middle and Far East at the Industrial Art department which also features glass, Hague silver, Hague china and Delft china.

A high point are the Piet Mondrian paintings on show in four halls, including his Victory Boogie Woogie. German expressionism is also represented beautifully with entire rooms devoted to contemporary artists like Constant.

Another queue to join!

I had seen a poster for a Mark Rothko exhibition that was taking place at the museum. I waited for only 33 minutes in this queue - it is fair to say that the queue was not due to the numbers of people in the building but due to the limited cashier space and operations.

It is in fact a large building on many levels - and I spent well over two hours selectively visiting exhibits. You can photograph in every room; without flash of course.
