As much as people might want to appreciate classical works of art in order to expand their cultural expertise, sometimes it is hard to find the beauty in old, stuffy creations; the Rijksmuseum x Etsy partnership recognizes this problem and provides a clever solution. It re-appropriates famous paintings and applies them to everyday items from home decor to fashion designs.
The Rijksmuseum x Etsy partnership is one of a few initiatives the Dutch museum has set into place to ring in a new era for the cultural hub. After a decade-long renovation, it has opened its doors to the delight of many. The Rijksmuseum x Etsy initiative is joined by other unique projects including Make Your Own Masterpiece that encourages younger generations to appreciate historical pieces of art in their own way.
