Selection from the Veendorp collection

13 June 2009 to 22 November 2009

Since 1969, the private art collection of R.J. Veendorp has been accommodated in the Groninger Museum on long-term loan. In more than half a century, Mr Veendorp amassed an impressive collection that includes work from the Hague School, French art from the nineteenth century, with work by Corot and Daubigny and others, and Dutch art from the beginning of the twentieth century, with work by Floris Verster and Jan and Charley Toorop, among others.

Classical genres such as the landscape and the still life were beautifully represented. Most work is relatively small in format, so that the exhibition had a rather intimate character.
