Ask anything

  • Lianne asked

    Dear Els,

    It's now Sunday. Has there been a translation already?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Lianne, I am very sorry, but I did not hear anything about the translation anymore. I will ask again. Thanks for the reminder. E.

  • Dina asked

    I noticed writings on the cupboard and if I am not mistaken it’s in Farsi. What does it mean?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Dina, thank you for your question. It has been discussed and researched by several colleagues and it appears that the texts are not Farsi, but Pakistan. Our curator has invited a translator, who will visit the depot on Friday. When we know more (f.i. what they say), I will let you know. Kind regards, Els
