From Gauguin to Toorop

The Groninger Museum as our guest

The Groninger Museum boasts an impressive collection of works by French and Dutch painters from the nineteenth and twentieth century. This collection was compiled by architect and art lover Reurt Jan Veendorp (1905-1983). Nature plays an important role in this collection, as does the emotion that nature has been imbued with by the painter. The collection includes beautiful paintings by the likes of Paul Gauguin, Odilon Redon, Isaac Israels, Jan Mankes, and Carel Willink. Museum Gouda is currently exhibiting its highlights.

The Groninger Museum’s collection is comparable to Museum Gouda’s own collection of works by the Barbizon school and Hague school. This fine collection was compiled by artist and art collector Paul Arntzenius (1883-1965). Highlights from this collection will be on display at the Groninger Museum for a period of six months.

All paintings exhibited are part of the Groninger Museum’s collection, on loan from Stichting J.B. Scholtenfonds.

From the 20th of July 2018 until the 6th of January 2019.
