Anna Elisabeth Kruyswijk (b. 1988, NL) is an Art Historian (MA, Leiden University) and a Fashion Strategist (MFS, ArtEZ) based in The Hague, where she works as the owner of Lauwer and as a lecturer at the Royal Academy of Art.

Lauwer does more than sell. Anna continues to do what she has been doing for the past five years as a curator / researcher for The Future of Fashion is Now (Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen), Dancing Light, let it move you... (Huis Marseille, Museum for Photography), and On the Road, Travelling with the Photographer (National Archives of the Netherlands). During that period she became quite familiar with the world of art. If it were up to her she would like to see larger and more diverse audiences, and more accessible and playful forms of art. So, by the end of 2017, Anna founded 'Lauwer', a new gallery in her areas of expertise: Photography, Fashion and Textiles.
