Thank you for checking out this artwork, it is a bit of a special one, so please read on :D
This is an artwork I created in a collaboration with Studio PMS ( http://www.studiopms.nl/ ) Studio PMS was tasked by the Centraal Museum Utrecht to create a digital version of a gown that is in the historic fashion archive of the museum. After the creation of the 3D gown, they approached me and asked me to to use their model, and portray it using his own vision.
The original velvet gown, with a generous train and trimmed with gold lace, was originally worn by Lady Henriette van de Poll (1853-1946), who was lady-in-waiting to Queen Emma from 1880 to 1934. This velvet gown was created by the famous Madame van der Taelen from Bruxelles.

The final artwork is an unique NFT that shows the gown in a romanticized vision of the Netherlands in 1905. Throughout the day we can subtly see the colors and light changing as time progresses.
The artwork will be exhibited at the Central Museum in Utrecht from the 23rd of April until the 19th of June as part of the “From Pattern to Polygon” exhibition.
