Sorry, teased you a bit. The title of the small exhibition at the canal house museum van Loon does refer to tulips.

It is a bit of a treasure hunt.
Guests arrived early, the museum director and artist on time, while Amsterdam’s deputy mayor was caught up in a traffic jam.

It is not often, that I discourage people from visiting museums, art galleries, exhibitions. However: if you’re not that much into (modern) art, no devotee of Turner, your time in the Netherlands is limited … any other decent excuse: skip this exhibition. There are far more interesting and important ones taking place in the Netherlands right now.
