Favourite (interior) architecture project

A painting may not be a 'project' in itself, but it gives a unique glimpse into the past. "De Kunstkamer van of Cornelis van der Geest" by Willem van Haecht II was painted in 1628, during Antwerp's golden age. The painting shows the art room of Cornelis van der Geest, in which he invited his friends and acquaintances, often important people of their time. Art rooms were filled with paintings, sculptures, inventions and exotic objects to be exhibited and discussed. It is basicly an exhibition at home. You can constantly discover new elements in this detailed impression of an art room.
