How did royalty travel in the past? This month, Jaap Kamp, the chairman of the Museum of Bags and Purses in Amsterdam, will discuss the travel prerequisites of aristocrats from the 18th to the 20th century when they went on holiday. In this lecture, he will also use the medium of these necessaires de voyage to investigate the influence of the past on modern beauty cases and picnic baskets. Kamp will also bring along a few of these historical pieces for the audience to admire.
