Notes

Carel Adolph Lion Cachet (1864 – 1945) had a profound influence on design and the decorative arts in Amsterdam. His innovative use and introduction of batik commanded a new visual language. By the 1890s he was a firm decorative artist embellishing a wide range of items from books and posters to ceramics. His wide interest is seen in his Oriental collection. His works are on show at the Rijks Museum Amsterdam.

Provenance

The Carel Adolph Lion Cachet Collection and thence by descent to the current owner.
