Eye brooch

This Eye brooch makes every outfit an eye-catcher. Inspired by the expressive eyes of those portrayed in the paintings of Cornelis Kruseman (1797-1857). These come back in the form of the enameled Eye brooch. By simplifying and abstracting shapes, fashion designer Michael Barnaart creates a powerful and iconic image. The brooches are engraved and each has its own number. This makes the brooch a unique collector's item. The brooches have a pin closure. You will receive the Eye brooch in a matching storage box.

Cornelis Kruseman, painter

Cornelis Kruseman (1797-1857) has been taking lessons at the Amsterdam Drawing Academy from the age of 14 and was apprenticed to Charles Howard Hodges, Petrus Antonius Ravelli, and Jean Augustin Daiwaille. At an early age, he gains fame and becomes a teacher to others. He works in Rome and The Hague and is therefore called the Italian Kruseman and The Hague Kruseman. During his lifetime, Kruseman was already a celebrated painter. He maintained close ties with the royal family for which he made several portraits. The work of Cornelis Kruseman falls into different categories, namely history pieces such as 'The Battle of Bautersem', portraits including W.A. Baron Schimmelpenninck van der Oye and Italian scenes such as 'One of meaning' (Rijksmuseum Amsterdam).
