NIEUW AMSTERDAM: 1938 - Fabled pre-maiden art brochure

Product Description

Holland America Line: The famous art-onboard brochure created for the NIEUW AMSTERDAM around the time of her 1938 maiden voyage.

The covers are elegantly textured stock. Inside, many of the fifty pages are in color and trimmed with gold, with five pages folding out to reveal even more gorgeous views.

"This book," points out HAL in the introduction, "describes the NIEUW AMSTERDAM in terms of Art with only casual reference to other features. It is intended to record a joint achievement of a number of artists and endeavors to introduce their works more widely in its mutual relationship." This Dutch ship of state was far less ostentatious than its French rival NORMANDIE, perhaps for the better, as it remained stylish right up to the early 1970s.

Let me just say that if anyone possess the painted oak panel showing ships over the ages that once stood in the NIEUW AMSTERDAM's First Class Foyer, I will gladly store it for you here in my living room. That abstract work by Piet C. van der Wilt shows the NIEUW AMSTERDAM surrounded by a swirl of ancient vessels. John Raedecker's plaster ceiling decorations from the Grand Hall showing the course of mankind would make a good substitute for me.

Some other artwork highlights - Adriaan Lubbers' view of Manhattan from Rockefeller Center, the famous bronze mermaid door handles by Nel Klaassen, stained glass windows through the ship by Cor Alons, and the bronze sculpture "Speed of the Wind" by S. van den Hoonaard. And if other artwork is not available for my viewing pleasure, then Reyer Stolk's lacquer panel showing the spread of theatrical art by ship will be a suitable substitute in my Baltimore living room.

As you can tell, if you love art, there is much to enjoy in this brochure.

Excellent condition.
