Grand Hotel Amrath, Amsterdam: W Bogtman






In August I happened to be in Amsterdam and admired the exquisite glass in the Grand Hotel Amrath, Binnenkent Centrum. Some are signed W Bogtman, Haarlam. They are innovative in that there is little colour but the outline is important. The images are of seafaring themes such as boats and sea-creatures. The outlines are formed bt lead came and black paint.
