"Le superflu, chose très nécessaire", wrote Voltaire 1736 in his poem Le mondain. Needless to say that luxury is much more than merely materialised redundancy. Offering a first panoramic view on various manifestations of conspicuous material culture in Netherlandish contexts from 1500 until the present, this study – rather than investigating self-evident cases of luxury – aims to explore its boundaries and the different stages in which luxury is fabricated or sometimes only simulated. Thematically, the volume focuses on two major issues, i.e. collections and foodways as means of expression of prosperity and splendour, which will be discussed by an international group of scholars, emanating from disciplines such as archaeology, history, book and media studies, art history, linguistics, and historical ethnology.
