Maaike Schoorel. Unsung Eve documents Dutch artist Maaike Schoorel’s contemplation of her own work in relation to the historical collection of one of the oldest museums of the Netherlands â€" The Willet Holthuysen House. Through paintings, drawings, collages and objects, Schoorel explores and reimagines the museum’s history, its collection and the story of its founder, Louisa Holthuysen.

This visually stunning volume, designed by Goda Budvytyte, showcases artworks created specifically within the context of The Willet-Holthuysen House. A roundtable discussion brings together a diverse group of international critical thinkers to deliberate on feminism, historical collections and their impact on contemporary (art) society today. Thus, Maaike Schoorel. Unsung Eve provides a unique perspective on the artistic practice of Maaike Schoorel while also providing much-needed insights into the pivotal yet often overlooked role women played in the founding histories of the Netherland's historical collections.
