Berend Strik

A Stitch In Time by Berend Strik (2012)

In honour of the building’s history as home of the textile guild, Droog commissioned Dutch artist Berend Strik for a reinterpretation of Rembrandt’s famous De Staalmeesters, a painting that once hung here. With this particular commission, he took Rembrandt’s famous ‘ De Staalmeesters’ (‘The Syndics of Clothmakers’) as its starting point. A significant painting by one of the most important artists of the day, testimony to the power and wealth of the guild to anyone privileged enough to be invited into the Staalhof, the guildhall in the Staalstraat where the board met and, indeed, where the work would initially hang after its completion. It remained there until 1771 when it was acquired by the City of Amsterdam and was eventually moved into the Rijksmuseum’s collection in 1808. Berend Strik’s new work is a lyrical circular connection with its place in the city’s august history. www.berendstrik.nl
