The Friends of steamship Rotterdam reconstructed the artwork in the Tropic bar. Our volunteer Jan Fahner is a real craftsman and has rebuilt the complete artwork. PPG Industries supported him free by analyzing the colors and by coating the doors of the closets. We are very grateful to PPG Industries for their support.
The Tropic bar has been designed by the architect Carel Wirtz and was constructed by Eckhart’s Meubelfabriek. Long ago Holland America Line replaced the artwork by a bottle-rack. We are proud to contribute to the authenticity of the ss Rotterdam by reconstructing the artwork.
