Timeless Travels Magazine - - ART ROUNDUP -

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.
