Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, the Netherlands Showing from: 30 September 2018 – 3 February 2019
Opening this autumn at the KröllerMüller Museum is an exhibition entitled For the love of art. Organised by the Rembrandt Association, it brings together, for one time only, more than 80 acquisitions from 40 Dutch museums, all of which were acquired with the support of the Rembrandt Association in the past 10 years.
For the love of art shows the full range of Association's acquisitions: paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and much more. The oldest work is about three thousand years old while the most recent dates from 2016.
The exhibition also examines various aspects of collecting for the Dutch National Collection: how and why artworks are collected, which criteria are used and why it is important to continue to collect for the Dutch National Collection, which is accessible to all.
At the same time as this exhibition, 15 small museum displays, from Groningen to Middelburg and from Haarlem to Maastricht will be set up showing works acquired with the support of the Rembrandt Association in combination with other collection pieces to which they relate.
