Lovely Legs at Galerie Gaudium!
Lovely Legs is the first exhibition of 2018 by Galerie Gaudium in Amsterdam. Godfried Bomans once said about Marlene Dietrich’s legs: “If my wife had only one such leg…” We would like to give you the opportunity to admire legs. As unique elements of vintage design, or through the art by Els Mulder. Follow us in a journey through contemporary art and midcentury design.
In the mid 20th century, there was a lot of experimenting with shapes and colours in furniture design. This often shows in their base. This has led to a colourful collection of beautifully shaped, eye-catching legs that we’d happily like to show you. Our Galerie is filled with rare, unique pieces that you won’t likely find again. For example the Bellevue Chair by André Bloc, that has a beautiful elegant leg structure. Also, the coffee table by Knut Hesterberg was inspired by the motion of a propeller. We have many more pieces with stories like this.
All of this is complimented by the lovely paintings by Dutch artist Els Mulder. She is a passionate danser, which explains her fascination for legs and shoes. She grew up in an artistic family. So it’s not a suprise that she followed her education at the Royal Academy for Art and Design in The Hague, NL. The “Legs” represents an ongoing theme in her work and we proudly exhibit a selection of this. Colourful paintings of legs, placed in alienated environments to create a unique, captivating picture.
The Lovely Legs exhibition has come to an end, but our Galerie is still opened on Friday and Saturday from 13:00 to 18:00h. We have different exhibitions every three months and if there is no info about our latest exhibition on our website, it means we are working hard on the next one! Contact us if you wish to receive more information about our current exhibition or latest items. All the items we have at our Galerie are also for sale and can mostly be found at our online store!
