THE NETHERLANDS’ MOST BEAUTIFUL TREASURE TROVE

A visit to the Kröller-Müller Museum is an amazing experience: a voyage of discovery that begins as soon as you enter the De Hoge Veluwe National Park. With almost 90 paintings and over 180 drawings, it is home to the world’s second-largest Vincent van Gogh collection. Here, you can get closer to his works than anywhere else. In addition, the collection features major pieces by worldclass artists such as Pablo Picasso, Georges Seurat, Claude Monet, Piet Mondrian and many more. At the same time, you can look through the enormous window into the garden beyond, where you’ll see sculptures by Auguste  Rodin, Barbara Hepworth, Jan Fabre and Marta Pan. In the 25-hectare ‘outdoor gallery’, where modern sculpture is presented in a natural setting, you can admire the artworks from up close and, in the case of Jean DuBuffet’s marvellous Jardin d’émail, even from the inside.

Marjolein Bastin – To draw is to breathe - Noord-Veluws Museum

To mark the anniversary of Marjolein Bastin (1943), the Noord-Veluws Museum is holding a large exhibition of her original watercolour paintings. Marjolein Bastin has always been captivated by the beauty of nature. She has been bringing nature and people closer together for more than four decades through her wonderful paintings, in which she lovingly captures her careful observations of nature in colourful creations.

She has a special bond with the Veluwe region, having lived there nearly all her life. “I feel very much at home here. Nature is here in abundance, and you can see, smell, touch and experience all kinds of different things.”

Although Bastin’s work has gained international renown, her original watercolour paintings are rarely displayed publicly. Therefore, the exhibition is a unique opportunity to get up close and admire over 120 of her original works, including many new pieces. The exhibition is ideal for children too, because the museum’s display includes Vera the Mouse, one of Marjolein Bastin’s most popular creations!

On display until March 17 2019.
