She specializes in weapons, Surinam, Brazil and the collection “Turkish Paintings” belonging to Ambassador Cornelis Calkoen. (18th century) which is exhibited in the new Rijksmuseum.
Paintings and souvenirs amassed by the Dutch envoy Cornelis Calkoen during Turkey’s Tulip Period are gaining as high a profile as their flamboyant owner. On show at the Pera Museum and the Amsterdam Museum in 2012, Calkoen’s Turkish Cabinet will grace the Rijksmuseum’s new 18th-century galleries in 2013.
