I enjoy the paintings on the socks. They remind me of museum visits in the past and I look forward to going to a museum again.

Thinking about buying Kunstsokken? Do it!!

Kunstsokken are not only beautiful, pleasant to wear, tasteful (also for others), but also of good quality after repeated washing! Anyone who wants to change the theme for a change, do it!

About the artwork

The Threatened Swan

'The Threatened Swan' shows a fierce swan spreading her wings in a protective yet aggressive pose, ready to defend her nest from an approaching dog. Although at first glance the work seems an apt depiction of a nature scene, it is often seen as a political allegory: the swan as statesman Johan de Witt, protecting the Dutch republic from enemies.

About the artist

Jan Asselijn

Born in the early 17th century, Jan Asselijn travelled around France and Italy for more than 12 years, absorbing the artistic influences of these regions. His skill in capturing landscapes and animals was obvious, but it was his understanding of emotion and ability to tell a story that set him apart from his contemporaries. The only portrait of Asselijn you see above was made by none other than Rembrandt van Rijn.

About the art movement

The Dutch Golden Age

While many of his contemporaries concentrated on portraits and cityscapes, Asselijn focused on landscapes and animal scenes. His works are steeped in the Baroque influences of the time: dynamic compositions, vivid details and a strong contrast between light and shadow. Unlike the extravagant Baroque of the south, Asselijn's works belong to The Dutch School: a down-to-earth, realistic approach to the movement.
