brass and wood, h 148.5cm × d 33.7cm Catalogue entry

Quirinus Harder was the most important Dutch designer of lighthouses in the second half of the 19th century. His last design was the round (nowadays red-and-white banded) lighthouse of Ameland (Hollum); at 55 meters, it ranks among the tallest in the Netherlands. The tower wall consists of cast-iron segments that can be assembled like a do-it-yourself kit on site. It has served as a beacon to guide ships since 10 May 1881.
