The Dolly Sisters in Antwerp

James Abbe’s iconic image of the infamous Dolly Sisters—toasting to their own success, no doubt!—is part of an exhibit at the DIVA Museum in Antwerp Belgium running until February 16, 2020.

“To celebrate 35 years of (Belgian jewelry designers) Wouters & Hendrix, we have transformed three rooms at Diamond Museum DIVA into a Room of Wonder. Take a look inside our heads and hearts trough our choice of over 300 pieces of jewelry, objects and artworks by Salvador Dali, Grayson Perry, Man Ray and many more. For some unknown reason, a small detail or object can make appear, as by magic, fragrant memories of love, sounds and sights. Those are wonderful moments and these objects are treasures.” – Excerpt from a press release from DIVA Museum in Antwerp, Belgium
