The Chinoiserie Splendour of the Theater Tuschinski, Amsterdam

Posted: January 9th, 2019 | No Comments »

I actually visited the very early art-deco Tuschinski summer before last but only found these photos when upgrading phones recently. The theatre was completed in 1921 with many Chinoiserie touches. It was designed by the architect Hijman Louis De Jong but named after Abraham Icek Tuschinski who commissioned it. It is a definite blending of other styles too, such as Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, the Dutch Amsterdam School of architecture and touches of Chinoiserie.
