THREE plastic bags for the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag

It has been over 30 years now that i became part in producing these 3 plastic bags for the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag ( Kunstmuseum Den Haag ). I made these bags together with Joost Swarte ( middle ) who was instructed to combine all departments of the museum into one illustration. In the late Eighties Sol LeWitt was asked to design a bag for the museum. There were two different editions. One colorful and one black and white (depicted). LeWitt borrowed the lettering from the Swarte bag, but the design was specially made for the Museum and the one on the right t was a design by Gracia Lebbink who used the “new” style and logo of the museum in the early Nineties to make a simple but striking plastic bag.

All 3 plastic bags are for sale at
