Pioneer & Terrier celebrates the life and career of Yvònne Joris (1950–2013), who served as the director of Het Kruithuis Museum in the Netherlands from 1987 to 2009. During her two decades at the museum, Joris was responsible for the acquisition of internationally respected collections of jewelry and ceramics. The book tells the story of this extraordinary museum director, while providing a historical overview of the museum itself. Museum staff, in collaboration with guest curator and scholar Titus M. Eliëns, provide a chronology and documentation of the museum’s ambitious exhibition history, as well as unrealized museum designs by Czech architect Borek Šípek and recently discovered building designs by Dutch designer Gerrit Rietveld.
