Tulips In A Vase

Artist: Sientje Mesdag-van Houten


Sientje van Houten (1834 – 1909) was a painter and the wife of Hendrik Willem Mesdag, the Dutch marine painter of the Hague School, and they celebrated their Golden wedding anniversary in 1906. She only began to draw after the loss of their only child. The majority of her paintings were still lifes, landscapes and portraits. In 1874, together with Gerardina Jacoba van de Sande Bakhuyzen, Kate Bisschop-Swift and Margaretha Roosenboom, she painted "Hague orphans", a painting for the then Queen Sophie on the occasion of the 25-years royal jubilee of her husband, King Willem III. In 1884, one of her landscapes won a gold medal. In Melbourne, her work also received a bronze medal. She exhibited her work at the Palace of Fine Arts at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois. Her work has been exhibited in numerous countries, including Australia, Belgium, England, France, Italy, Austria and the US. On 21 December 1904 she was named Officer in the Order of Oranje-Nassau.

Joyful, bright spring tulips to cheer up any grey day, what could be more perfect ?

What size frame do I need ?

Each piece of artwork in the Musée gallery has been resized to work perfectly with International 'A' paper sizes.

All you need to think about when framing your Musée artwork is that it needs tobe in the appropriate A sized frame.

This means that no part of your artworkwill be lost to cropping when choosing frame sizes. It also means thateverything will work proportionately in gallery walls, and print sets.


Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
