Woman in Delft Blue - Tile tableau from an orphanage in Sommelsdijk

Art code: 995 847 Copy the art code

MadameRuiz Profile picture A woman is hidden in a tile tableau originating from an orphanage in Sommelsdijk. Looking out over the birds, flowers and plants in Delft Blue.

An interesting combination of classic and modern. Appropriate in both a rural farmhouse, and in a modern interior.

The delft blue tile pattern naturally reminds us of the time of the Golden Age, although the original is from the early 18th century, namely 1725. In the Golden Age, Delft blue was designed out of a form of pure necessity. Chinese porcelain, imported by overseas trade, was so incredibly popular among the Dutch bourgeoisie that demand far exceeded supply. This led to the creation of a Dutch variant on Chinese porcelain, namely Delft pottery. At first it was completely in the style of the Chinese, with drawings of Chinese landscapes and people. Later on it became more Dutch with windmills, tulips, clogs and peasant women.

The original used for this collage comes from the Rijkscollection of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and was made in Delft. It is a tile tableau of faience (a type of pottery), consisting of 96 tiles, painted blue in the glaze with a flower vase on a pedestal. To the left is a parrot on a stick, to the right a cockerel. The representation is surrounded on three sides by a border of leaf and flower motifs with cupids.

I am MadameRuiz, and am an artist by profession. I hope to delight you with my work. Here in my profile, or on your wall :) Both are fun!

Will you let me know what you think of my work? I would love to get in touch with you. Also when you have one of my works in your home I am very curious about the end result in your interior.

I love everything that has to do with art, culture and creativity. Experiencing, creating, teaching and communicating. Through language, image, non-verbal and through the musical voice.

I became known for my commissioned ink portraits. My work was first shown to a large audience in the program VTWonen Weer verliefd op je huis (February 2021). I make many ink portraits of and for individuals; from pregnancy portraits, wedding portraits, child portraits, love portraits and family portraits to portraits of pets such as dogs, cats, horses and birds. These ink portraits are all handmade by the way, drawn and painted with east indian ink on watercolor paper.

In my shop at work on the wall you can order my Digital Art. Because I normally work almost exclusively on commission, my autonomous art via Digital Art is really a wonderful experimental outlet. This also means that I keep experimenting with painting techniques and collage techniques using Photoshop. Although I love to experiment, quality comes first
