“Veracht ons Hollandt niet, wy hebben schooen Koeyen, Daer uyt dat soete-melck, en room, en boter vloeyen…”. De oude Nederlanden weerspiegeld op de blauwe tegels in Krzyżowice
The purpose of this paper is to show a collection of Dutch azure tiles stored in an old palace in Krzyżowice (Lower Silesia, Poland). The article presents a brief history of the palace and shows the images applied to decorate the tiles, focusing mainly on the image of a Dutch village: landscapes with bridges, mills, boats, scenic pieces presenting fishermen at work, people skating, animals (especially cows). The text is to show the way in which the tile images and other products of Dutch culture relate to one another (copperplate engravings, poetry). The paper thus seeks to present what makes this collection of tiles interesting in this particular part of Europe.
