Como vamos viendo no hay superficie ni material que se le resista a nuestro artista Alberto Taboada, lo graba todo y en cualquier espacio, incluso nos sorprende a nosotros que no dibuje previamente, ni que decir tiene que sus trabajos nos enamoran.
Dear fellow royal fans, if you should find yourself in Amsterdam then please go and check out the wonderful Juwelen(Jewels) exhibition in de Hermitage.
(just the first room)
also did the free tour at 11 which was excellent, in Dutch though.
I learned that:
-Empress Elizabeth owned over 10000 ballgowns
-after huge dresses the complete opposite became fashionable: thin dresses inspired bu the acient Greeks, nothing worn underneath & made wet so it would cling to the body of the wearer(like greek statues). Empress Josephine died after she went outside for a stroll wearing her wet dress & contacted pheunomia
-the Russian princess who married a Dutch king(Willem I) thought the church(for coronation?) was far to cold and instructed the female attandees to wear turtleneck sweaters. They only had 10 days to arrange this
-you could also not wear anything prettier than the queen
-for long strings of pearls they had to open 15000 oysters (if I remember correctly) to find a perfect one. The strings would be so long you had to be careful not to trip over them
-this bouquet of flowers made out of jewels was put on a thin stem so that when it was worn it appeared to move. They even made a small insect
-its not just jewels and costumes also knicknacks and canes with poisonous tips etc
-you could flirt using fans and dots
-or if you wanted to be more clear you could send your object of affection something showing exactly what you wanted to do
