The collection of the Groningen art collector Reurt Jan Veendorp consists of more than 400 unique objects including paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures and ceramics. The emphasis lies on Dutch art from the second half of the nineteenth and the first decades of the twentieth centuries.

The collection gives pride of place to the painters from The Hague School (Haagse School), such as Jan Hendrik Weissenbruch, Jozef Israëls, Anton Mauve and the three Maris brothers. Art from the generations after The Hague School is represented by the Amsterdam impressionists George Hendrik Breitner and Isaac Israels, and also by Jan Toorop and Johan Dijkstra in slightly different styles. French painting is also represented in this compilation.

The art collection travels through Germany and the Netherlands.
