Museum acquisition The Philadelphia Museum of Art has acquired three tile panels in the style of Art Nouveau. These panels are a fitting acquisition because of the continuation into the present of the Museum's extensive collection of Dutch tiles from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The first panel is produced by Joost Thooft & Labouchère around 1903, the second, named Juffertje in 't geel, by the Koninklijke Porselein en Aardewerk Fabriek Rozenburg around 1905, and the third by the Plateelbakkerij De Distel around 1906.
