Welcome! I am Ada de Wit, an art historian and a PhD candidate at the Radboud University Nijmegen (the Netherlands).
This site tells you a bit about my professional activities and interests – all related to European decorative arts and historic interiors. Currently, I am preoccupied with seventeenth century woodcarving, Grinling Gibbons and Anglo-Dutch relationships (1650-1700).
Thank you for visiting, do look around, and please contact me if you have any questions!

I am taking part in a study trip to York and North Yorkshire organised by the Furniture History Society. It will include private visits to Sutton Park, Newby Hall, Norton Conyers, Fairfax House and York Mansion House.
