Puttertje broche (Goldfinch)

michael barnaart + the goldfinch

The Mauritshuis is 200 years old. Michael Barnaart is celebrating this with a brooch as an ode to The Goldfinch, the painting by Carel Fabritius.

Strong images from both high and popular culture play an important role in Michael Barnaart’s designs. By simplifying and abstracting shapes, a powerful and iconic image is created. The use of color and geometric compositions fit in with the design tradition of Dutch design.

The enamelled brooch (56 x 56 mm) with magnetic clasp is engraved and each item has its own number. This makes the brooch a unique collector’s item.
